SWS Module 2 Wraps Up!

Last week marked the end of the second quarter at Wheatley. For our School Within a School program (SWS), it marked the end of Module 2. I am particularly fond of Module 2, for it is during this time frame that I have been fortunate enough to offer a class for these past four years.

This year, my class was based on Sean Covey’s The 6 Most Important Decisions You’ll Ever Make. It was a remarkable treat to be able to teach a group of wonderful students over the marking period. With SWS classes meeting twice a week, students in the program have an opportunity to take a wide variety of courses each module. During Module 2, a sample of the courses offered included:

  • Beloved
  • The 6 Most Important Decisions You’ll Ever Make
  • The Ethicist
  • The Little Prince
  • Rhinoceros
  • Cooking with Life Skills
  • The Visible Man
  • Mindfulness
  • Podcasts
  • Inspired by Dreams
  • Trip Around the World
  • Cultural Criticism
  • Contemporary Dramas
  • Poetry as Protest
  • Memoirs
  • AP Language and Composition
  • Mock Trial

We used our 16 class periods during the module to discuss the various “decisions” outlined in the book. Students wrote reflections on what they read throughout the module. As a final project, each student presented a topic to their peers.
