Each year, New School Montessori sixth graders embark on a yearlong odyssey, researching a topic of interest to them. They condense their fifteen-page papers into riveting 5-minute oral Power Point presentations. In the span of a pleasant evening you can learn about many interesting topics and characters from history.
Our alumni often return to the school to support each year’s 6th graders. They have shared that what they learned through TNSM’s senior project process has prepared them – not only for the rigors of junior high and high school – but for writing, public speaking and the joy of learning they have experienced in their university studies and in their careers.
Click the link below to see samples from this year’s presentations on such topics as Marvel comics, warping space and time, the history of women’s rights, Cincinnati architecture, Ella Fitzgerald and more. These students have put a lot of themselves into this work – and it shows.
A big thank you to Katie Sammons for taping the evening in full.
