One major project in sixth grade is the medieval pageant. Students choose from a variety of guilds such as arms and armor, medicine, cartography, and music. They immerse themselves in their area of study over a significant period of time. Students work together with their “guild masters” (teachers) to map out the process, share the work, and present a final product. Personal accountability is essential for both their group and individual work. Sixth graders also hone and reflect on real world skills that can be applied across a variety of disciplines.
