WOW Wednesdays

Wednesdays of Wonder (WOW)

In education, authentic learning is an instructional approach that allows students to explore, discuss, and meaningfully construct concepts and relationships in contexts that involve real-world problems and projects that are relevant to the learner.  

Authentic Learning is part of the District’s Jeffco Generations Vision. Jeffco Virtual Academy middle school students are learning about Generations Skills. Students leave their virtual learning and come to campus one time a week. Teachers lead a Jeffco Generations brainstorming lesson generating activities they could do to meet the Jeffco Generations.  In order to accomplish some of the activities, one campus day a month is specifically 
dedicated to authentic tasks. 

  • Self Direction & Personal Responsibility
  • Civic & Global Engagement

  • Communication

    Our Middle School students will also go off campus with JVA staff to take brain breaks at the playground, park, or a short walk this semester. In order for students to be off campus, families must sign a Permission Slip and return it by January 31, 2019. If you did not complete the permission slip last semester, please do so this semester.
