Inside the Classroom

In September 2021, District 86 launched the "Inside the Classroom" video series to showcase the work/learning our schools are engaged in on a daily basis, and highlight some of the ways in which we support the growth, development and success of our students.

Below are the videos that have been produced during the 2022-23 school year.

You can access all of the videos in the series by visiting the Inside the Classroom playlist on our YouTube channel.

AP Language and Composition at Hinsdale South

In this video, Mr. Moore and Hinsdale South junior Amelia Lavorato talk about how students develop the skills to become analytical thinkers who can clearly articulate their reasoning through writing. They also share examples of how students are able to immediately implement these skills in their real lives on their college essays and AP and SAT tests.

SEL in District 86

In the video, Kurt Vonnahme and Megan Parker talk about the role and responsibilities of the district's social and emotional learning (SEL) coaches. With the help of students Grace Choi and Shay Doshi, they also highlight the impact and benefits of the monthly Red Devil Reflections and SouthPride Lessons, which are created in collaboration with the Student Voice Committee at each school and are focused on helping students build their SEL skills and competencies.
