Ms. McDaniel went into 6th grade classes last Tuesday and 7th grade classes last Thursday to teach a guidance lesson focused on tolerance and accepting differences. Classes discussed different cultures and looking at differences as something to celebrate. Students learned about some of the cultures we have in America and various things those cultures have brought us. Classes also discussed how to be respectful to someone even if they have a different lifestyle.
Ms. McDaniel went into 8th grade classes yesterday to teach a lesson on careers and planning for the future. Students worked with the Missouri Connections program to look at how their interest matches with potential career options. Students learned about the 6 career paths and 16 career clusters within those paths. Students also explored their top career cluster matches and specific information about the careers in that field. Students learned about the importance of planning for their future in order to have a goal they are working toward throughout high school. This will also help to determine which high school classes will best fit with their future plans as they get ready to do their personal plan of study in 2 weeks with the high school counselors.
