•    Propeller Academy integrates art, music, movement and manipulatives into subjects when appropriate.
•    Teachers are encouraged to manage “workflow” within the module at their discretion. Teachers can integrate subject content over various modules. For example, reading may reflect a science theme.
•    Hanger Time is relaxed but structured learning time. Students can read, visit learning stations, finish assignments, and explore MI resource puzzles, games and activities. It is an engaging learning recess and break in their classroom. The length may be adjusted depending on the day and the required time for the subjects being taught on either side of Hanger Time.
•    The modules are unlikely to change, however the arrangement of subjects may be adjusted if needed.
