For those of you old enough to remember the classroom scene in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off where the students are staring in an educational stupor, that is the last thing we want for our scholars during EOG prep lessons. Not only does the repetitive reading of passage after passage and question after question bore everyone, teachers included, but it slowly kills any love for reading our scholars may have. Our goal as the seventh grade team was to make EOG review as exciting as possible and to engage the scholars in reading for fun while using strategies they have learned throughout the year. We have been gamifying the unit by competing as tribes in Survivor: HSA@MMS.
Robert Miller, Chief Executive Officer of Marketing and Communications for Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (Hyperloop TT), visited The Health Sciences Academy at Monroe Middle to speak with the eighth grade class on Monday, April 23rd. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from Pitt, Masters in International Relations from the International University of Japan, and his Marketing certificate from Georgetown. He was invited to HSA @ MMS by his sister-in-law, Ramie Miller, an Eighth Grade ELA/AIG teacher at our school. Hyperloop TT is an innovative transportation system that will run trains at 760 miles per hour, roughly the speed of sound, in a vacuum tube powered by renewable energy and magnets.
