North Union High School: Transition Mini Grant Update
On November 27th, four excited students, two para educators, and one special education teacher took a fieldtrip to Opportunity Village in Clear Lake and to Exceptional Treasures in Algona. Teacher Mary Gelhaus of North Union High School had five objectives in mind for her level 3 student’s learning. She wanted to broaden the students’ perceptions of future career options and opportunities for meaningful employment, to broaden her knowledge of diversity of services within and outside of our area, increase her knowledge base of activities to incorporate into her classroom, especially pre-vocational training and life skills, to increase the students’ awareness of possibilities beyond their homes and communities in which they now live, and to have the students practice money skills, functional reading of signs and menus, and social skills.
