News-Decoder Spotlight: 9th Graders at Miss Porter’s School

Copia de orig_photo403590_3945020Students in their first year at Miss Porter’s School were recently featured as a “Decoder Spotlight” on the educational news service News Decoder‘s website, who notes that Sophie Paris, director of the Institute for Global Education at Porter’s, is leading the school’s efforts to link the educational news service to its curriculum.

Science Teacher Sarah Bouckoms shares that she has used the news service in her Environmental Lab Science class, the first science course that all students at Porter’s take. During this course, students explore, practice, and apply the skills necessary to question, problem solve, and communicate their findings through concise, scientific writing.
