  • Tie-Dye Experimentation

    As part of a unit on fibers and fabrics, students in Fashion Tech Two experimented with the properties of cotton — absorbency and color-fastness — by tie dying t-shirts in class. Most of the students did traditional tie dye patterns, but Rhiannon Gantner ('24) tried the ice cube method of putting dry dye on ice cubes placed on top of her shirt. Once the ice melts, the colors blend into the shirt. Who says you can't have fun while learning!

  • Measure of Academic Progress in Math

    All Algebra 1 students must go through testing called Measure of Academic Progress (MAP). MAP assessments are a computer adaptive achievement test which means that the computer adjusts the difficulty of the questions so that each student takes a unique test. The difficulty of each question is based on how well a student has answered previous questions. In the end, students receive a MAP RIT score which is norm-referenced to other students and represents a point on a continuous scale of learning.
