SIS Rocks the G4 AMPed Fair
Posted 04/27/2017 11:31AM

On Friday April 21st, Grade 4 students participated in the annual 4th Grade AMPed Fair on Level 5! Parents, teachers, and other students attended the fair adding to the excitement. AMPed (Autonomously Mastered Purposeful education) projects allow students to extend their learning in an area of interest. This allows for student-centered learning that develops independent work habits, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Students are required to problem solve throughout the AMPed process, building their confidence and communication abilities. Many students have setbacks, failures,or incomplete projects. These are viewed as positive learning experiences that provide valuable feedback to the child and build persistence and determination.

Each student begins by identifying potential projects in six different areas: service, teaching, learning, promotion, enhancement, and creation. Students are then tasked with narrowing their ideas down to a single project that they can research, document, and complete independently. Examples of student projects include computer programming, learning to speak French, educating others about healthy eating, writing a book, and raising money for various charities. Students will continue to assess and reflect on their projects. Be sure to look for AMPed fair reflections on student blogs.
