In the Materials and Processes class, students were prompted by the question, "What could we design/create that reuses materials?" Students then went through the design process to brainstorm as many ideas as possible. The students narrowed down which ideas they would like to further develop. Students participated in various critique sessions with peers in order to make their idea better. Finally, students presented their ideas to a board of "investors" to practice presentation skills and get additional feedback.
ALC Films students attended a viewing of "Racing Extinction" recently at Sundance. Students were able to meet the director of this film, Louie Psihoyos, who also directed “The Cove” which was at Sundance a few years ago. What a great opportunity for our Film students.
Darrel Hammon, Senior Director of Community College Programs at UVU, announced last week just how much Concurrent Enrollment students saved over the 2013-2014 school year. By taking concurrent enrollment classes during high school, students saved 8.2 million dollars in college tuition costs. What a savings, what an opportunity! At $5 per credit hour, concurrent enrollment (college credit earned while in high school) courses save each student hundreds of dollars in college tuition.
It's that time when classes are changing and students have the opportunity to receive college credit while taking classes here at ALC. Students enrolled in the ALC classes listed below can be concurrently enrolled (Concurrent Enrollment-CE) in these high school classes and UVU and thus receive college credit while receiving high school credit. This opportunity saves families hundreds of dollars in tuition.
The Advanced Learning Center's Computer Programming teacher, Mr. Eastmond, reported great success with the results of students taking the computer programming skills certification test. Eleven out of thirteen of his students received a skills certificate with two of those receiving a 100%. Our Health Sciences teacher, Miss Grant, reported that 100% of her students received Emergency Medical Responder Certification after taking their test this week. Congratulations to all students receiving certifications!
Five members of ALC's administration, faculty, and staff attended vital accreditation training in Salt Lake City this week. The Advanced Learning Center is in the process of becoming accredited with an initial review having been completed last fall. The ALC is now a "Candidate for Accreditation". We are now in the throes of collecting data to provide evidence for our evaluations. We look forward to becoming fully accredited as it will allow us to more fully serve a greater number of students living within the Nebo District.
