This year at BHS we created and are utilizing the following essential questions to promote the BHS core values and mission statement.
BHS Essential Questions (2017-18)
School wide question of the year: What is the power of one?
Freshman Year: What makes up my identity, and how does my identity impact my role as a community member?
Sophomore Year: Why is it crucial to question our assumptions and seek multiple perspectives?
Junior Year: Why is it important to work toward establishing equity rather than equality?
Senior Year: How can I use my skills, knowledge, and resources to better my community?
For my Design class which is made up of mostly freshmen I created two sketchbook assignments using the essential questions:
What is my identity? And How does my identity impact my community?
