Mr. Kevin Shindel

Questioning is the foundation of learning. Students are encouraged to develop and pursue questions they find meaningful. How do you know what you think you know? We start our journey there and weave our way through topics including technology, racism, politics, media, college and more. Within these areas, students are given great freedom to adopt and develop their own questions and tailor the learning to their own interests and curiosity. The seminar-style class allows for great freedom in what we decide to pursue and relies heavily on dialogue and research.
