• Summer Activities~

    Posted by Laura James on 5/2/2013
    Again, I was thinking about something…  :)
    Summer activities for my students…  Any ideas?  Am I being too ambitious?  Should I just prepare an activity for our return related to their summer break activities?  Please share…  Or, what skills do you think are important to emphasize working on over the summer?????

  • Recycle, Reduce, Reuse at Memorial~

    Posted by Laura James on 5/2/2013
    Hello all~ 
    I’ve been thinking about contributing to the recycling effort here at Memorial.  My class could take it on as a service project to help out; as well as, incorporating a comprehensive recycling emphasis within our social studies & science curriculum.  We have learned about recycling and could work to collect and sort items for our campus.  We could even take a class trip to recycling plants to see how it all works.  I think this would be a great ongoing project for us!  However, I know that it would take a great deal of effort to plan the coordination and logistics of such a plan.  Also, I need to find out what recycling activities are currently in progress to know whether it would be necessary to supplement what already exists or create a plan for a new program.  I would LOVE and APPRECIATE any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, or help~

  • Successful Vocational Track Facilitation~

    Posted by Laura James on 5/2/2013
    My students with special needs will be taking more courses within the general education population here at Memorial because they are choosing a vocational track to follow throughout their high school education.  I want to facilitate the implementation of this policy to the best of my ability.  I welcome suggestions from general education teachers about topics like how I can best support the inclusion process, etc.  Or from special education teachers with words of encouragement and anecdotes about what strategies have been successful; as well as, what has not been as successful, etc.  Any thoughts or ideas would be helpful...  Thanks so much, in advance, for your assistance~!
