What It’s Like to Be a Biathlete

As part of our Yearbook class, we are exploring different ways to share content like creating blog posts, posting photos, making films, and compiling them together to create multi-media content. To put this learning to use, our class interviewed Jack Loughan, captain of the biathlon team and Student Council President, to gain an insight into being a biathlete at TEA.

War. What is it Good For?

This past spring, the class of 2021 traveled to Washington DC to study war and its effect on society with their own eyes. They interviewed several experts including professors and veterans to formulate their own opinion on this controversial topic. Watch their video recap!

Is Water a Commodity or Is It a Basic Human Right?

As part of our Middle School Learning Expedition titled “Balance of Power” TEA students traveled to Las Vegas to better understand the changing nature of power within a political, social, and natural context.

Exploring Yosemite to Understand the Purpose of Art and Our Ethical Duty to the Wilderness

As part of our 4th-grade Fall Learning Expedition titled “Poetry, Poets, and Becoming Writers”, our students examined the purpose of art alongside our ethical duty to the wilderness. Fortunately for us, we need to look no further than the works of John Muir and Yosemite National Park to put these concepts together.

What Makes You Unique?

For their Pre-K Learning Expedition titled “I am UNIQUE, I am ENOUGH!”our 4 and 5-year-olds are learning how to notice similarities and differences while also learning how to give and receive appreciations.

Examining the Criminal Justice System

For their student-designed Expedition, our group of 11th and 12th-grade students definitely picked an interesting subject to explore. In true TEA fashion, they took learning out of the classroom and into the field to investigate the criminal justice system, high recidivism rates in the United States, and figure out how to support reintegration.
