Due to the pandemic, our plans for The Trial, a comprehensive conclusion to the Mods experience for seventh grade students, were waylaid. Instead, our students engaged in an equally rich and interconnected opportunity to showcase their learning. Seventh graders engaged in a story exchange with two of our peer schools – The Fayerweather Street School and Charles River School. As a team of teachers across disciplines, we designed this story exchange to drive connection and sow empathy amongst our students. This engagement with our partner schools forged collaboration and connection during a time of remote learning. Our students exhibited caring, respect, and excellence in all of their interactions with their peers.
