Visitors to ISA
On Wednesday 5th of December, The Baldwin School, a premier independent school in Puerto Rico visited ISA to meet with students, faculty and administrators. The International Baccalaureate Organization recommended that The Baldwin School visit 4 schools in the Washington DC Metro Area and suggest that we be one of them.
Exploring the Brain
The IB Psychology classes have been learning about the correlation between localized brain functions and behavior. They worked in teams to construct models of the brain made from Play-Do. Their teacher, Dr. Cindy Waddell, explained that using a hands-on approach to student learning helps reinforce key concepts. In the pictures, you can distinguish the parts of the brain by the different colors used by the student teams.
