Journey to Excellence

Throughlines

Throughlines are overarching questions which address a variety of understandings. They point to the "big picture" and help students make connections between what is learned in school and their experience in the outside world. Throughlines give a focus and a perspective for students. For example:

  • What does it mean to be an American today? What factors have made us the way we are?
  • How do we demonstrate God's grace? What are the qualities of a Christian leader?
  • Why do we study literature? What are the defining elements that make a classic?
