Adult Education

GED Prep and ESOL – This week in the adult education classes it was all about health!  Mrs. Netherton had a science lesson on cancer, what it is, how it develops, and what measures to take to try to prevent and detect it early.  This sparked much discussion and interaction among the students.  Links to many good videos and resources were shared; one of them was the American Cancer Society.  Graphs and charts were used that involved math percent problems.  Finally, we discussed various careers in the health field and what kind of jobs there are in Lake County.  Of course, we had many students support the Breast Cancer Awareness event, donate to the cause, and wear pink!

Mr. Seidner has been helping math students all week; working out problems on fractions up to quadratic equations, using wipe boards and the giant calculator!

Mrs. Avelli shared, with her regular morning group, a science lesson about heat energy transfer and the difference between convection, conduction, and radiation.  Students as a group were encouraged to make predictions before they performed a heat energy transfer experiment, using hot water, ice cubes, a water bottle, and a balloon.  No fingers were burned in this experiment!

Mrs. Girard and Mrs. Stafford, evening instructors, had many of their students earn LCPs (Literacy Completion Points) this week, and students were awarded their certificates.  No matter how old you are, it is great to be recognized for accomplishments and hard work!  They also had many students get into the Cancer awareness event by spraying their hair pink (instructors included).
