Spotlight On Our Craft

In order to bring more of our classroom and building activities into the spotlight   FargoSchoolTalk will be adding a new regular feature to blog content.  Each week, or as often as we receive them, we’ll post pictures from around the District.  Below are three recent activities, two from Carl Ben Eielson, and one from South High…

Students in Brenda Cain’s sixth grade science class at Carl Ben Eielson learned some of the basics of correct lab practice in late August, including a demonstration of consequence – what happens when you add an acid to a base (vinegar to baking soda).
Students in Katie Wangstad’s first-year German class go over some basic phrases earlier this week. On Monday, Sept. 12, the students reviewed Germany’s reaction to the 2001 attacks, and completed related lessons in their new language.
“Project English,” an annual F-M Area Rotary Club project for adult English Language Learners, kicked off last week at Carl Ben Eielson Middle School. The program, now in its second year, teaches English to CBE’s ELL parents using the Rosetta Stone computer software. Project English has evolved from Rotary International’s commitment to literacy, and its local chapters’ long-time partnership with CBEMS through the FPS Foundation’s Adopt-A-School program. F-M Rotarians have been tutoring the school’s ELL students with their homework and reading assignments for years, and more recently, have been assisting CBE’s ELL parents with student registration each fall. Project English meets weekly through May.
