Eighth Graders Dig Deep to Analyze Snowy Environments
Monday, March 02, 2015
With the snowy Wasatch Mountains in our backyard, it seemed only natural that Rowland Hall eighth graders should venture out and investigate diverse winter environments. From Antarctica to the mountain ranges of North America, scientists dig snow pits to analyze various aspects of the area such as avalanche threat, the subnivean environment (the zone in and underneath the snowpack), water content, and climatology. A few weeks ago, the eighth grade science classes traveled up Big Cottonwood to conduct the same field experiments that scientists conduct in snowy mountain regions around the world.

Celebrate and Support Our School at Le Cirque Gala this Month
Sunday, February 01, 2015
Enthusiastic participation in this biennial tradition is very much appreciated and is what makes this event successful time after time. In fact, Rowland Hall's auction is not just a tradition, it's a necessity. This single event raises more funds for vital programs designated by the Board of Trustees -- such as faculty professional development, financial aid, math and science instruction, and future construction of the Steiner Campus -- in a single night than would be possible by any other means.

Teachers Teaching Teachers
Sunday, February 01, 2015
Administrators and teachers understand that professional development ideas are crucial to our continued success, but none is more important than time. Researchers assert that a key to improving instructional quality is setting aside professional development time for teachers to collaborate. In fact, increased professional development time improves educational outcomes more than increased instructional time does. Great teaching ideas rarely evolve into effective classroom instruction unless teachers have sufficient time to reflect with colleagues. When professional development merely describes a skill, only 10 percent of teachers transfer that knowledge into practice. However, when teachers are coached through the implementation phase, 95 percent transfer the skill into practice.
