Week 2: Kali & Shawn

Here's what happened last week:
  • We worked on the 'Out of our Window' exercise.
  • We also did other great writing-improvement exercises.
  • We learned how to cash our checks, open a banking account, and what to do with our pay stubs.  This was a very valuable lesson to learn!
  • We also did individual poems called, "A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words"
  • Last thing we did was learn how to do blogs........ which are going great!
The 21st century skills we used were:
  • Creativity & Innovation- "Out of Our Window Exercises", discussed perspective and its importance.  We also practiced creativity through our writing exercises.
  • Communication & Collaboration- Our lead artist spoke to us individually for approximately 5 minutes to provide him/her with feedback about their job performance.
  • Initiative & Self Direction- We will use photos for prompts and write from personal perspective.
  • Creativity & Innovation- Each group will receive 30 minutes to research and prepare a presentation for the team.
  • Payroll & Process- We reviewed how to process a paycheck.
What are we doing next???
  • Working with our career coaches on developing different areas of job ready skills.
  • Reviewing and providing feedback on our poems.
  • Finally, we will be presenting our research to our group of interns and lead artist.

  1. Nice job on the blog entry!

    I brought in some used clothing for the team today so you can start practicing writing your poems on them to see what will work best.

    I'm really looking forward to the seeing your final products!
