Expectations of every Big Picture student every year.

You want to learn. Your parents and advisors and mentors want to help. Here are the things we expect you to do to make your learning powerful.

Every year, every Big Picture student should:

  • Explore your interests in the world by participating in at least three excursions with your school, your advisory and small groups.
  • Identify and explore your interests.
  • Learn how each school subject can help you understand the world.
  • Explore with your advisory teacher the BPEA learning goals.
  • Read books.
  • Have a positive impact on your community by participating with your advisory in at least one service learning activity.
  • Meet with your full Learning Plan team at least four times a year.
  • Reflect on gaps in your learning and address them through project and course work.
  • Create at least four Learning Plans during the year.
  • Complete the work in your Learning Plan.
  • Complete one advisory research project that has real world concern.
  • Build a portfolio of your work.
  • Exhibit publicly four times a year.
  • Write in your journal three times per week.
  • Complete a personal narrative each year about your learning.
  • Use your supercalendar every week and plan your time over the term, the month, the week and each day.
  • Come to school each day on time.
  • Be responsible for your location and actions (sign out of advisory, etc.).
  • Show respect for others and yourself.
  • Take responsibility for your learning process.
  • Take advantage of opportunities and make summer plans.
