In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. For our students who want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer, all of our students will certainly need a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as we learn about Computer Programming. Students in my “Coding” class will be writing and creating programs using the Python programming language. Students will also learn Block style programming for Android Phones and Tablets using the online MIT App Inventor system.

In other various courses I am teaching, students will learn a wide range of technology applications such as MS-Word, MS-Excel, hardware and software concepts along with basic video editing and production. Students will be introduced to 3D design and 3D Printing. All students in my classes will have ample opportunity to learn and practice 21st Century Skills throughout the semester and year.

Week 22

Students began work on their Tri-Fold brochure using their Desktop Publishing skills.  The topic revolves around the field of robotics.  The cover panels are off to a great start as seen in these samples.  Stay tuned for updates as the project progresses.

Over the next few weeks, students will be creating other brochure panels that define what a robot is, describe educational and career opportunities, share historical facts and other topics. 

On Thursday, our 6th grade students had an opportunity to visit the Holocaust Memorial Museum in San Antonio.  Students had an opportunity to listen to the horrors first hand by a survivor of the Holocaust; Anna Weisz Rado.
