Rocky Mount Middle School
While not widely known as celebrities in popular culture, 21st Century skills are bright stars in the RMMS curriculum. Developing students' communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity skills maximizes student potential for success in both society and the workplace.
Ms. Arlinda Love's 6th grade Learning Seminar students strengthened their critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, problem solving, and communication abilities through The Marshmallow Challenge. Working in teams, students designed and constructed free standing towers that supported a marshmallow at the tops using only 20 spaghetti sticks, 1 yard of tape, and 1 yard of string.
Ms. Enass Mahmoud's 7th grade social studies students collaboratively communicated and used critical thinking and problem solving skills to complete graphic organizers illustrating global influences on the Italian Renaissance.
