Senior Seminar/Ethics Course
Please view the video attached below which shares the rationale, course design, and content of a curriculum adjustment for Ethics and Senior Seminar this year.
In an effort to live by our mission and core values we have made a careful decision to adjust the Senior Seminar and Ethics of Technology curriculum for the 2020-2021 school year. This decision was a thoughtful and focused adjustment to aid our seniors through the college application process. In these uncertain times, and with many universities choosing to move to a test-optional application pool, we felt it was prudent to increase our assistance with resumes, college essays, testing, and the entire college application process. It is likely colleges will be looking at a more holistic application and these items will play a greater role in the decision making process.
Our Ethics and English teacher, Mr. Rhodes, will assist with the new course and offer individualized support for students’ essays. A weekly email will allow students to sign up for a virtual review and help session.
College Counselor Mrs. Dworsky will co-teach the new class and work with Mrs. Sadowski to offer individualized student / family planning meetings.
The course will end October 9th prior to the Early Decision / Action deadline of October 15th.
