This cycle is designed for a Geometry/Art class. The theme ties together the language of art and geometry into the adolescent finding the own voice, through self-reflection.
The school I designed around is a traditional school with block scheduling. We created a Montessori space by combining an art class with a geometry class (so two teachers, two credits).
