Predicting the Future
Juniors at Da Vinci High pioneered a new end-of-the-year project in their humanities classes recently. The project, which called for students to review trends over the past sixty years and paint a mural predicting trend outcomes in the future, was a huge hit. In preparation for making the murals, students studied various forms of media from the past sixty years, and even received a visit from local science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson. The resulting variety of themes and predictions in the murals was outstanding, and students were enthusiastic about sharing their work. The murals will be displayed outside classrooms during the coming year.
