Law Class Was Murder At The ALC!

Submitted by amy.ewell on Tue, 03/23/2021 - 20:58

Mrs. Ewell's Business Law class participated in a giant game of Clue today at the ALC.  Students could be seen around the ALC writing down all the evidence and clues they could find. 

Students in Business Law learn about everything from the origins of the law, criminal law and civil law throughout the semester.  As part of the criminal law section, and in preparation for an upcoming quiz, Mrs. Ewell has students and ALC faculty take on the role of a suspect or assailant in a murder.  Students must roam the building finding clues, identifying alibis and learning vocabulary terms to eventually accuse someone of murder.

What's White, Brown and Green All Over?

The new plants at the ALC!

Did you know that having plants in the classroom and learning environment can boost test scores, reduce sick leave hours, increase creativity and improve mental wellbeing? #PlantsDoThat

“When plants are around, students are just smarter and pay more attention,” says Dr. Charles Hall, Ellison Chair, Texas A&M.

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Mon, 03/15/2021 - 11:04

In Architecture CAPs,  they have had the amazing opportunity to work with architects such as Wes Christensen and John Shepherd on different projects.

Some of the projects this year include a Roxberry Juice building and restrooms for Salem Hills High School tennis courts. They have also had the opportunity as a class to dive in a little deeper on how to create technical drawings when they produced documents for a Warehouse.

To finish off the year, they will be consulting clients to design several different residential projects!

A "RISING" STAR AT THE ALC

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Thu, 03/11/2021 - 11:47

One of the programs that we have at the ALC is our Educators Rising Club. It is a club for students interested in becoming teachers. They have a monthly activity after school focused on exploring a career in teaching, assisting teachers in the classroom, and learning fun, interactive ways to teach.

For the February activity, they made hot chocolate bomb gifts for classroom teachers and a bubble Valentine for each of their students. They had a lot of fun and were pleased with the excitement these gifts created in the schools.
