    National Career Readiness Certificate

    iJAG students had 3 days of testing during 3rd quarter for a National Career Readiness Certificate. Students had to be present all three days and pass all three tests to obtain the certificate. The idea of the NCRC is to show employers the fundamental skills a candidate has in completing jobs. Employers in the state of Iowa are now often looking for this certificate and it’s a great resume builder! The following students obtained the bronze level certificate: Trey Canaday, Billy Stanger, Scott Boyer, Ashley Fry, and Angelo Dominguez. A silver level certificate was obtained by Alia Tyler.

    Injured bird cared for by Science Teacher

    Ms. Downs found an injured bird in our school parking lot.  Science Teacher Ms. Meyers was able to retrieve the bird and do a quick diagnosis of its injuries.  It appeared the bird had a concussion and after a bit of nursing and observing, the robin was released back into the wild and successfully flew away.

    Sensation versus Perception

    Mr. Callaway’s Psychology II class was completing a lesson on Sensation versus Perception. They completed an activity that involved using ‘Inversion goggles’ that simply inverted the world the way our eyes actually SENSE the world and this was to show the incredible complexity of our brains. We actually sense the world inverted through the eyes and then our brains perceive them ‘right side up.’ It is a very concrete example of how astounding our brains are.

    Living Algebra!

    Students in Algebraic Principles at Mid City learn to find the solution to a system of equations by graphing.  Ms. Mastalio worked with mentor teacher Mrs. Kormann to create a floor size graph, using ribbons to graph the solutions, to help students use kinesthetic learning to better understand the concept.  Students were able to count off the rise and run with their feet to help them better understand how to find the solutions.
