    Description: Fieldwork
    Learning extends beyond our school’s walls; it connects to the world. Students at Northpoint learn from fieldwork, experts, and service in addition to learning from texts. Students frequently work in the field. Fieldwork is mandatory, alternatives are not available and attendance will be recorded. The field may be a forest, a theater, a nearby town, another state, a hospital lab, a courtroom, a museum, a classroom panel of experts, or something else entirely. Students working in the field are active investigators using the research tools, techniques of inquiry, and standards of presentation used by professionals in the field. In addition, by going to a particular field site, students acquire a sense of place that furnishes context for the investigation and brings the “story” of the investigation to life. In addition to having students conduct research outside the school, teachers bring experts from the community into the classroom. These experiences maximize the student’s motivation to learn. All students are expected to participate fully in assigned fieldwork. Remaining on campus during fieldwork is NOT an option, as the fieldwork IS THE CLASS WORK for that period of time. Students who do not attend fieldwork risk losing credit on assignments and in a course.
