Learning Innovatively for Tomorrow
LIFTed is the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) program at Hart County High School. The program is designed to leverage community resources to create a real world context. LIFTed enrollment is based on learning styles first and possible interest in a STEAM related career. As self-directed learners, students regularly deepen their learning through collaboration with peers as well as interactions with community members. Typical LIFTed classroom instructional strategies include:
Focus on Project Based Learning
Students work individually, in pairs, and in small teams to engage in multiple interdisciplinary projects throughout the semester that allow for a unique learning experience. These projects will allow students to experience the world as it exists outside of the classroom walls.
Integration of Content Areas
Classes and projects will allow students to work on mastery of skills and standards for multiple content areas. This allows for class experiences to have greater relevance to the student.
Emphasis on 21st Century Skills
LIFTed students explicitly practice and improve their 21st century skills such as critical and creative thinking, collaboration, communication, leadership development, and technology skills.
The program provides for multiple entry-ramps into our STEAM inter-disciplinary classes.
