Mahwah Middle School News

The New Year has begun and the holiday events from last month have faded with time as Sage Day Middle School begins to focus on initiatives that continue into the New Year.

Project Based Learning or P.B.L.’s require students working in groups or as individuals developing research revolving around a driving question that reflects real world issues. Students develop a well-researched paper that is embellished with various supportive materials that can include media, music and an oral presentation.

Writing continues to be a center piece of the English Program as well as all academic areas. Emphasis on strong writing skills will serve to reinforce communication through written expression which will work in conjunction with the research papers and projects planned for later in the year.
