Foreign Language

Teacher: Melissa Jagears

Description: This is a continuation of Look Who’s Talking in Spanish 3 from the Fall 2018 semester

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.

**Please note: This class is closed to new students.

Home Economics

Teacher: Vanessa Richardson

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.

Students that enroll over multiple semesters will continue making more complex apparel items, along with other projects as time permits. This class is intended for students who are ready to expand on what they have learned.  The projects to be made will take much longer than prior ones, and may even take the whole semester to finish.  The students will be introduced to new sewing concepts, such as collars, cuffs, zipper insertion, sewing button on with their machines along with button holes and twin needles.

The student will be required to read patterns and encouraged to understand them as they progress to the more difficult and advanced projects.

Math

Teacher: Melissa Jagears

Description: A spin-off from the TV show, Survivor: Survivor: Pre-Algebra is a fun twist on collaborative learning.

This Survivor Season’s theme is Expressions and Equations.

Students will be placed into tribes to work through material during class together. They will take challenges individually to earn individual grades, but, through their tribe, they will be able to win bonus points, depending on the performance of their tribe.

At the end of the semester, prizes will be awarded to the “surviving” tribe, tribal MVP, and top scorer.

This class isn’t mainly about math, rather it’s about learning critical thinking and success skills.

Survivor: Pre-Algebra Workload:

• The Week Prior to Co-op: Students will be assigned to read through the material to be discussed on Monday from a self-teaching friendly text provided by me. They will need to attempt to work through a handful of related problems (5-10). Parents may answer questions if asked. Please do not teach them the lesson, though you may answer their questions or ask them leading questions. They need to “wrestle” with the assigned problems before class as best they’re able to be more attuned to what they need to glean from the “lecture.”

• Co-op Day: I’ll take questions on the previous week’s homework reading/problems. If students are completely lost and don't know what to ask, I’ll give a mini-overview lecture of the topic. Then I’ll ask the students a math question or two to see if they can do some problems cold. After most are done (or stuck), I’ll talk the class through the problem. Then I’ll have them gather into tribes where they’ll work on problems together to boost their tribe’s survival capabilities. During tribal time, I'll answer any questions they have as they work together to make sure their tribe comes out on top as “survivors.”

• Homework for the week: Before they leave, I’ll assign them an individual survivor challenge which will consist of (7-10) questions on the topic discussed in class. Parents/teammates/other people cannot help them with the survivor challenge (they will be disqualified from receiving prizes), but they can consult their text and class work/notes.

They will need to take a picture/scan their work and email me when finished (Make sure it’s legible). If they’re without the appropriate technology, they can email/leave their answers on my answering machine and bring their challenge to the next class to prove their work. The first tribe that has all its members send me their answers first with an average score of at least 70% will win bonus points.

They'll also be assigned to read next week’s topic and (5-10) questions on the new topic to attempt on their own before class as early discussed.
