They will also increase their skills in understanding body language and facial expressions, analyzing different social interactions and how they can be misinterpreted.  Students also learn to recognize and express feelings in positive ways and learn how to relax in today’s busy world using a variety of activities to increase vocabulary and verbal expressions.

Want to establish an online course for Bren Road Education Center students  who may not have the opportunity to attend Culinary Arts class for classroom instruction, because: they are out on a field trip for good behavior/meeting goals; in an area of the building other than my classroom as a result of poor choices - unable to make it to class; etc.

This Moodle is designed to house course materials needed to make the SECA/Hennepin County Earl Literacy Partnership a success. Here, students and staff will find course materials, feedback opprotunities and outreach information.

Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. Alice is a freely available teaching tool designed to be a student's first exposure to object-oriented programming. It allows students to learn fundamental programming concepts in the context of creating animated movies and simple video games. In Alice, 3-D objects (e.g., people, animals, and vehicles) populate a virtual world and students create a program to animate the objects.

In Alice's interactive interface, students drag and drop graphic tiles to create a program, where the instructions correspond to standard statements in a production oriented programming language, such as Java, C++, and C#. Alice allows students to immediately see how their animation programs run, enabling them to easily understand the relationship between the programming statements and the behavior of objects in their animation. By manipulating the objects in their virtual world, students gain experience with all the programming constructs typically taught in an introductory programming course.

The program is to help the new teacher in the program to develop the necessary skills to meet the challenges in the classroom setting; including classroom management, lesson plan development and working with school personnels.

Self determination is believing you can control your own destiny. Self-determination is a combination of attitudes and abilities that lead people to set goals for themselves, and to take the initiative to reach these goals. It is about being in charge, but is not necessarily the same thing as self-sufficiency or independence. It means making your own choices, learning to effectively solve problems, and taking control and responsibility for one's life. Practicing self-determination also means one experiences the consequences of making choice.

VERY OFTEN our students do not have this attribute.  Included in this Moodle will be an assessment for base line information as well as instructional material to assist students in gaining increased awareness related to self-determination and support information and materials for instructors.

Students study various forms of poetry such as sonnets, lyrical, and elegiac, and narrative. They then create their own poem and create a "Chinese style" lantern using construction paper, yarn, and an art medium (paint, markers, mosaics, etc.)  The lanterns are three dimensional containing four sides. The poem they create is meant to honor a person that they admire - either living or dead. On three sides are meaningful images that they create that relate to the poem. On the fourth side is the poem.
