A college education is the KEY to your future, which can be anything from a one-year certificate to a four-year degree and beyond. This week at the ALC, we are hosting our Utah College Application Week (UCAW), which acquaints all our students with the importance of preparing for and attending college.
At the ALC, we are specifically helping our seniors in our ENGL 1010 courses, to complete and submit at least one college application, as well as learn about college admissions, scholarships, and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
On Saturday, October 5, A group of 20 girls from the ALC along with our architecture teacher and pilot, Ms. Adriane Wilson, and our CTE specialist, Mrs. Ronda Hair met at the SCL airport to join a group of 120 girls from all over the state of Utah to take part in the 2019 WING flight. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for these girls.
They alternate a different state to be picked to go on this flight, so it was such a privilege for Utah to be chosen this time.
Ms. Ronda Hair took 3 of our ALC students to the Adobe I-Heart-Tech Conference that Adobe hosted recently.
There were close to 350 students who attended.
The workshops were based on STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education. In a robotics workshop, students faced several programming challenges. The final task was to have their “mBot” robot follow a curving black path. The team with the fastest robot advanced and raced other teams. The coveted prize was Fitbits for the fastest bot.
People learn in different ways – hearing, seeing or doing.
Visual – You learn by seeing
Auditory – You learn by hearing
Kinesthetic – You learn by doing
If you are a Visual Learner, you will learn best if you can see it. You love images, posters, charts, videos, diagrams, etc., and you like to take notes to help you remember.
If you are an Auditory Learner, you learn best by listening. You love a good discussion and listening to interesting stories to help you remember.
To understand how something works, sometimes you just have to go all the way back to the basics.
In Mr. Halls Avaition class, that is exactly what they did. In order to understand the airplanes they will someday be flying, They needed to understand all the pieces to the airplane and how they work.
For the past few days the students have been learning about engines, and even had to build an engine starting from the first little nut and bolt ending with the finished product.
'I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers' This is my favorite time of the year.
Glad October (Tune: America The Beautiful)
Oh, beautiful the autumn time!
October days are here;
The trees in royal garments clad
Join in our songs of cheer.
The earth is holding festival
In colors bright and gay;
The world is like a picture fair
This glad October day.
Oh, autumn time, we welcome you
with songs of joyous cheer,
