Posted by Brenda Ronan on Jul 2, 2019 10:08:00 AM

Why you should start career exploration in high school

How many people have asked you what you want to be when you grow up? Or, what you want to major in? If your answer has been “I don’t know,” you are not alone! Many students go into college as undecided and take several years to declare their major. Even though this is extremely common, it does have its drawbacks: some students end up having to go to college for an extra semester or two because they didn’t declare a major soon enough. Also, it’s possible that you didn’t choose the college that would be best for your career choice. If you want to get the most out of your college experience high school is a great time to start exploring different options.

3 Ways Cooperative Learning Can Create a Lifelong Love of Learning

Posted by Brenda Ronan on Nov 14, 2018 2:33:00 PM

Cooperative learning can include varied settings and formats, but we are going to use it to broadly cover interactive group activities – namely, those in which groups of students work together to solve problems.

If you are picturing a free-for-all setting, like Lord of the Flies, don’t worry. Good teachers remain engaged throughout the process to keep an eye on the work and offer feedback on individual and group performance. Offering clear expectations and guidelines early on will allow students to understand the boundaries and allow more freedom and autonomy to explore the problems inside of these parameters.
