BCS teachers help students broaden their minds, think deeply about real issues, and step out of their comfort zones.

And teachers lead by example. On Monday, middle and high school teachers from across the district met at A.C. Reynolds High School to learn forward-thinking lessons and strategies from each other and local experts. The BCS Curriculum Department encouraged teachers to move across disciplines and check out some of the interesting sessions outside their expertise.

“We’re not siloed,” said Stefanie Buckner, math specialist for the Curriculum Department. “We believe in collective efficacy. We’re better together. And that lets us look at the whole child and the whole experience.”

The diverse topics provided something for everyone: spectroscopy; virtual and augmented reality; inclusive, nonhegemonic, and rigorous African American history; social-emotional wellbeing for students, geographic information system mapping, writing in the math classroom; Japanese fish printing; and place-based civic education to name a few.
