Connect Charter school taking a different path of learning with are new program.
This year Connect Charter was introduced to a new program called EXPO. This article will be interviewing students that have recently come from connect to see what their opinions are about EXPO.This program is putting students in the shoes of someone else so they can have the privilege of seeing what its like in first person. The reason I chose this topic for my article is because I want to know how Connect impacts kids learning in positive and potentially bad ways. We know for sure that this program will happen this and probably for the years to come. EXPO has worked out very nicely over the course of time we have had it. Even though we’re just being introduced to EXPO .
Connect has been doing very similar things like going on over night field trips such as camp sweet and forte steel. “EXPO has helped me experience things in real life” said Spencer Murray. “I like the fact that we go on over night field trips and iPads”. said Iraj Khan. Chris Evanston coming from Webber Academy said that “I have enjoyed filled work a lot more and it gives me more free time at home not having to do so much homework. EXPO is showing kids how to learn in new and hopefully Connect continues with the project. This is helping kids and is giving a new learning experience that the CBE does not have. Expo is setting the example that learning does not have to take place in a classroom and studying always isn’t in a textbook.
Connect is always coming up with ways to make learning fun in school to, recently Connect had two green houses built by an expert that helped build them in the arctic. Unlike most middle schools, Connect gave all students the chance to do electives, giving students the choice to do something they love or enjoy. “The great things about electives for me is that there is always something you want to do” said Jack Mhendam. “Agreed” said Briana Dave’s. Connect is convenient for its perfect location. We are right next to the Tsuu Tina nation property which gives us advantages. Like being able to host a POWWOW.
At the end of the day we need to remember that EXPO would not be possible without the parents and teachers helping in all sorts of ways from donating to the field trips to going on them such as Mr sweet helping with camp sweet and Mr Peg helping with forte steel.
