8th Grade SIGNET

Students were given a choice of a year long project or focus area at the end of 7th grade. Students are pulled once a week from their ENCORE class for SIGNET. Students are engaged in the Literary Magazine, Trebuchet, National History Day, or Computer Science Foundations or Earth Science through Virtual Virginia.

We focus on the 5 C's! See below.

  • Critical Thinking: Students use various types of reasoning, interpret and evaluate information, and draw accurate conclusions.
  • Creative Thinking: Students use various idea creation techniques, create new and meaningful ideas, and evaluate those ideas.
  • Conceptual Thinking: Students use patterns or connections between abstract ideas to organize thinking and develop concepts or rules.
  • Communication: Students communicate effectively in a variety of forms, contexts and for a variety of purposes.
  • Collaboration: Students work effectively and respectfully with others and assume shared responsibilities.
