We began a new unit on personal finances. I also gave students an opportunity to improve a low grade. Right now we are talking about Income Taxes. Later we will talk about Credit Cards, Car loans and other matters. I am trying to make this information as real and relevant as possible. I also am using high quality curriculum. If the students do the reading and the problems they will obtain the training they need to make good decisions soon in life. That is my job with the math. If the student took the career planning and character training to heart at the start of the class, solid forward progress is possible. Please keep checking grades and remind our senior to keep reading and working assignment problems. I can not think of better use of class time.
We had our secone Military man talk about careers, the military and life lessons to the class. Both were good presentations. The military is welcomed and honored in my classroom.
