The vast majority of our seniors have applied to and been accepted to college so the next step is to look at their course catalogs and start signing up to fulfill requirements. We had a small activity for the kids to research courses they might want to take and start to see what is required therein. There were some surprises in what could "count" as an English or Math credit, and some excitement at the prospect of taking these courses!
I am a math teacher in the New York Department of Education. I infuse technology and real-world problems into my curriculum in order to prepare my students for the future. I would love for people across the country to recognize we teachers can't do it alone. If you don't believe me, come visit my classroom!
