Teacher: Melissa Jagears

Description: Teaching foreign language proficiency through reading, storytelling, and physical response is based on the idea that to acquire a language, students must be exposed to many meaningful repetitions of the most common words from that language, both aurally and through reading.

In this class, students will read, act out, and translate stories using the comprehensible input they are provided in class. The story structures will be similar as we expand the stories with more vocabulary in order to ingrain what they already know and build meaningful, related vocabulary structures. Building vocabulary in this manner helps students talk in a foreign language faster than memorizing lists of words and verb conjugations.

Homework is necessary for this class since immersion and constant review in a language is necessary for language to stick. With only one day a week of class, it's necessary for students to review what they've learned during the week prior to the next class so that precious class time isn't taken up with reviewing. Most weeks, student homework will consist of a small list of vocabulary words to memorize since we will incorporate those words into the learning that will happen in the next class period, translating an easy short story containing the grammatical structures and vocabulary worked on in class, and questions in regards to the short translated text.

I will email videos of me saying the new words for the students to listen to so that they can work on proper pronunciation of the words they are memorizing during the week. If writing is difficult for them, it is acceptable for them to dictate to a parent or a computer dictation program to turn in for homework, but doing this homework is the best way for me to gauge quickly what they are not understanding so I can bolster weak areas with specific classroom activities.

Teacher: Taylor

Description: This class is ONLY for beginners who have never sewn or who have never taken sewing at WWHM. It is designed to create a fun atmosphere where students will be introduced to different sewing concepts. Our hope is that if they have fun in class they will have a desire to sew on their own after they have completed the class. We do not have any outside homework. All projects will be completed in class and are required to stay in class until completed, then will be taken home.

Students will work at different levels, but each level of ability will work with the same patterns. The projects are designed to teach a different sewing concept, and will get more advanced as they move along. Students start with simple projects like: pillowcases, aprons, and later move on to tote bags.

The student will not be required to read patterns for these beginner projects. We give students the choice of enrolling in this class for one hour or as many as are offered. The number of projects will be determined by the student's pace, how long they will be in the classroom, at the speed at which they comprehend the skills being taught.

Class Length: 16 weeks

Prerequisites: No previous sewing experience necessary, but all students (even if they have previous experience, but have not been in WWHM sewing before) will spend the first 2-3 weeks familiarizing themselves with the machine and passing a basic sewing skills test before beginning any sewing project. All patterns are available for use in class, but students will need to provide their own fabric and other supplies needed.

Book: none

Supplies: We will supply sewing straight pins but each student will need to bring: sewing machine, fabric scissors, seam gauge and ripper, tape measure, pin cushion, marking tools and fabric for projects.

We have extra sewing machines available upon request, you will need to reserve one when you enroll if you desire to use one for your student. The rental fee is $25 per semester. New students will need to purchase a basic sewing kit (previous items listed above) if you don't already have them. They can be purchased at Wal-Mart or any fabric store. We are now allowing students that have a serger to bring them to class with their sewing machine. They will need to take both home each week.
