Ok, here’s a very vivid example of how we roll. So a couple days ago a student sat in my office and asked me how he can start volunteering at local museums, because he wants to work in a museum when he is old enough. He is very interested in “anything to do with history” he says. ANYWAY, the staff does some searching and contacts the History Museum down town. They email us this morning welcoming our students to join their Ambassador program…training begins in September 2017. So, tell me…what’s more important, that he fill in all the blanks of a math worksheet OR figuring out how to volunteer at a museum? I’m open to your thoughts (and mind you he will still do the math because he wants to go to college, so he is motivated to learn his high school math so he can get into college…on his own).
