Now that the 2013-14 school year is nearly complete, all high school and middle school parents are invited to share their thoughts through a survey on access to technology for learning. Your responses are completely anonymous and will help make the TL2014 initiative the best it can be. Thank you for taking a few minutes to participate. This survey will close on Friday, May 16.
Results from previous surveys are available above under the Assessment/Evaluation tab. The results from this survey will be shared with the school board, teachers, students and the public in late June 2014.
Similar surveys will be available to students and teachers beginning Thursday, April 24.
Mrs. Prokesch’s 7th grade Language Arts classes completed the poetry unit by developing a podcast using one of their own poems from the many they created this month. Students spent a day learning how to write a script, embed music and sound effects, and use different editing techniques before submitting their final podcast using Falcon Apps. Some podcasts have been shared on Mrs. Prokesch’s website. Check them out!
This marking period Mrs. Marie Shuey, high school ESL teacher, and Mrs. Robin Burns, high school library media teacher, worked with ESL students to digitally curate research for an ecology unit. The project required students to focus on one aspect of ecology and create a Thinglink that creatively curated what they learned on their specific topic. All of the information and digital resources for students are located on the high school library FalconGuides.
Students were instructed on how to link images, videos, and informational text through one interactive visual image. The selected image acts as a starting point for the projects connecting each link to individual research content. The Thinglinks were shared in class for all students to view their classmates work and answer questions about each topic.

Along with researching the lives and achievements of famous leaders, students examined how these leaders used personality traits to reach their goals. Students applied the Seven Habits to their famous leader to better understand what can be achieved by practicing the Seven Habits.
