A seminar brings together a small group of learners to study a topic of common interest. This can be done as a discussion or debate, through inquiry or project-based learning, or by other means. The Ligonier Valley Middle School offers a variety of seminars throughout the year. Topics vary and groups are assembled by interests rather than by grade-levels.
A description of each seminar is posted on Flextime Manager so learners can review offerings and sign up to participate. Each learner is expected to participate in at least one seminar of his/her choice each quarter. Seminars take place during the Instructional Support Period at the end of each day.
