6th grade: Exploring Career Decisions, 7th and 8th grade: Technological Systems
This is my 18th year teaching middle school. Technological Systems is a project based class that explores computer programming, computer aided drawing, structural systems, inventions and innovations, and rocket design. 50% of class is using computer applications.
This is a semester course.
There is minimal homework and all projects will be facilitated in
class. 7th graders need to bring in a 2 liter Soda bottle for their
water bottle rocket.
Career Decisions allows students to self-assess, matching interests to career
choices, explore the world of work, research careers, and
learn about education and career planning. There are opportunities for leadership development, critical and
creative thinking, decision-making, problem-solving, teamwork and technology applications. This class is for nine weeks.
Class expectations are:
Be on time to class and prepared with a pencil.
Apply all safety procedures.
Be respectful of other students, materials and equipment, and yourself.
Take responsibility for your learning.
