Grade 9 students at ISH have recently finished an IDU entitled “Why Do we Turn Away?” The unit strategically paired academic lessons in psychology, the novel Exit West, and global migration with more personal learning opportunities in both performance and service. This unique combination allowed students to challenge their opinions and develop authentic understanding.
