Adventure Days is our middle grades special event where classes are canceled for two full days so students can pursue a project to advance skills of their individual choosing. 2023 was year 10 in our decade of prototyping and iterating on this big idea! I wrote about our very first year here, and wrote up the status as of Year 4 here at GettingSmart.com
The trajectory over all these years has been exciting! We've tweaked how we launch Adventure Days among both faculty and the kids. Working through Covid quarantine learning, for example, we discovered the value of short videos in disseminating instructional information.
