Foreign Language

Teacher: Melissa Jagears

Description: In this class, students will read, act out, and translate Spanish stories. The story structures will be similar as we expand the stories with more vocabulary in order to cement what they’ve already learned and build meaningful, related vocabulary structures. Other material will be covered, such as pronunciation and verb conjugation as it fits the lessons.

***NOTE*** This class is meant to build upon itself every semester. I will continue to teach these Spanish students until the desire drops off. I cannot add new students into later semesters because the previous classes will be prerequisites.

Homework is necessary for this class since immersion and constant review in a language is necessary for language to stick. It will be 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 and writing out an easy short story containing the grammatical structures and vocabulary worked on in class, and/or questions in regards to the short translated text. Please set aside some school time to attend to Spanish homework/review.

Social Studies

Teacher: Nancy Reeves

Description: Students will learn about world geography and culture by exchanging postcards with people around the world. Each student will have an account on postcrossing.com to track received postcards and get addresses for recipients.

Homework is VERY IMPORTANT and EASY. Students must (1) bring received postcards to class, (2) write a message on outgoing postcards, (3) mail outgoing postcards within 2-3 days of receiving addresses in class. PARENTS, by registering your student for this class, you are agreeing to help make these 3 things happen. The last item of homework is also quick and easy, and it increases the value of the class: (4) complete a worksheet for each postcard received.

Previous students may repeat this class. New students will have priority if the class fills.

Postcards in the supply list will be pooled for everyone to select.

Note: It is possible for a student to use the teacher’s account instead of having their own. I discourage this because it limits the number postcards sent and received. Please contact teacher with questions or concerns.

Teacher: Melissa Jagears

Description:

There's more to vision than just good eyesight. Visualization is key--but sometimes it's not naturally acquired.

If your student:
Has trouble following multi-step directions
Seems to erase the information from their head moments after you gave it to them
Finds reading boring - or resists reading
Has difficulty answering questions about what they just read
Has hit a wall academically
Seems smart in everything but school
Gets stressed over having to do school work
Talks negatively about their academic abilities, or lacks confidence

It may be that they're struggling with visualization skills. Visualization is the ability to imagine, sense, become aware of, move, manipulate, and expand the pictures in your mind's eye. Some kids see very clear, detailed images in their minds, others don't. When they don't, the information they are supposed to store in their brains may not stick, causing them to struggle in school.

Using the See it. Say it. Do it! model by vision therapist, Dr. Lynn F. Hellerstein, we'll work at relaxing away stress, envisioning success, and practicing using their mind's eye to process information.

*This is not a substitute for vision therapy if needed.

Class Length: 12 weeks

Teacher: Laurie Russell

Description: Ethics "gives students the opportunity to explore and evaluate different opinions and compare them to their own. It promotes critical thought, which is beneficial to practice before making any decision. Critically thinking about situations also can prevent students from blindly following others without considering alternative options.....ethics provides a way for students to engage in intellectual discussions, improve moral reasoning, and explore the answers to meaningful questions about life.

Sharing personal thoughts or opinions about ethical issues can build confidence in students and teaches them that their beliefs about problems in society are important. Through debate or arguments that reflect opposing views, students can freely address ethical issues. Debating whether or not an act such as abortion, war, or denying a human right violates human rights or harms others allows students to explore and evaluate diverse thoughts about behavior." https://study.com/academy/lesson/teach ing-ethics-to-high-school-students.html

A topic will be introduced through a short video, then we'll discuss the idea together in class. Afterward, the students will group together to do an informal debate. Each student will need to be an active vocal participant, in this class, with oral arguments for their side.
