In the Literacy Explorations Class at Heritage Middle School each Friday brings a day of student directed learning. The class is participating in a genius hour where students are able to research and learn about a subject they are interested in outside of normal lesson plans. This means students are learning how a boomerang returns, how bones fuse together, how to make ice cream and how prosthetics work. Giving students a choice in their education gives them a chance to learn to love learning. The class will explore their projects once a week for the rest of the school year and then do a presentation to their class on their findings. Real life learning prepares these students to be Ready for Tomorrow.
The Davidson business teachers are having students participate in a budget challenge. The contest is part of a national HR Block challenge. Students learn real world skills in managing their finances and have an opportunity to win scholarship money. The students are given a salary and must learn to pay household bills, save for the future and balance a checkbook over the course of the semester. Giving students this real world life lesson definitely prepares them to be Ready for Tomorrow.
