Real Life Research
For middle- and high-schoolers
Current trends in education have shifted in recent years toward a more real life application for learning. This course is designed to help students identify real life situations that they may encounter as young adults and help them think critically about possible outcomes.
Each student will choose a topic to research and will develop his or her own plan of attack. The final product will involve a detailed personal budget, a written report summarizing the history of the topic, the results of the research, and a conclusion. Additionally students will need to prepare a multimedia presentation on their topic and will present it to the class.
Some possible topics to be explored include identifying investments that will result in the best return when making a home more energy efficient, determining which car to buy in a given price range and circumstances, and long term financial planning. The exact topics will be up to each student to determine, although examples and suggestions will be given.
This class is designed for sixth through twelfth grade students.
Workshop Dates: Mondays, September 9 – November 4 (4:15 – 5:00 p.m.) Students will also be given an opportunity to sign up for one additional 45 minute small group session.
Cost: $75 Workshop Location: Classes will meet in San Jacinto at the home of the instructor
