Townsend Middle School G/T

Hello!  My name is Mara MacDonald and I am excited to be the new Townsend Middle School G/T teacher.  This year your child has been scheduled to meet with me 7th period one day per week:

    6th Grade- meets Monday during 7th period

    7th Grade- meets Tuesday during 7th period

    8th Grade- meets Wednesday during 7th period

All the grades will follow a similar or complimentary unit of study.  When possible I may pull all three grades together for a working lunch/speaker.  We will utilize an online tool called Google Classroom to stay in touch throughout the week.  Typically I design units that last 4-8 weeks that cover a wide array of topics.   Throughout these units of study your child will be challenged in the areas of but not limited to:

  • Research Skills

  • Risk Taking

  • Creativity

  • Critical Thinking

  • Logical Reasoning

  • Technology

  • Interpersonal Skills

  • Intrapersonal Skills
