Future Teachers Helping SES
This week Dual Credit Education Professions students have been working on multiple projects at SHS while their internship classrooms take on ISTEP. First, students began working on weighted vests after Mrs. McDonald, a teacher at SES, reached out to our class in search of students willing to help make them for her students. These vests have been found beneficial for some students in helping them calm down and focus. We were able to upcycle some vests from the sewing class era to help save costs for these vests which are priced for $50 - $150 on Amazon.
Additionally, students have been comparing research articles to classrooms observations relating to development. In class on Friday, students used clues, articles, and diagrams relating to the brain and learning to try to "breakout" of a Breakout EDU box. The bell rang with one lock yet to figure out.
