Google Classroom Information

Most Brown-Barge teachers are using Google Classrooms and Google Drive features actively in their classrooms. Please ask your student for more information about how Google is used to enhance education. Teachers are able to share resources and post assignments and students are able to ask questions and submit assignments, as well as share resources with one another. Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets all allow students to collaborate together on projects and create visual displays of information. 

Teachers at Brown-Barge

Ask Brown-Barge teachers what they teach and you're likely to get the same response: "Students!"  Brown-Barge is taught using an integrative model.  Teachers teach in teams in multi-graded classrooms without specific subject boundaries. Teams and Streams, our thematic units, change every 12 weeks.
