cross the country, parents, students and educators are considering how schools can better prepare students for the dramatically evolving world into which they are graduating and engage a new generation of learners in more problem-solving, handson experiences around high interest topics. Menlo Park City School District’s Hillview Middle School is doing just that, under the banner: “School. Only different.” During the week of March 17-21, Hillview launched a weeklong learning choice program called “Mini-Courses.” Teachers and community members collaborated in planning unique experiences that allowed for the sharing of personal interests and strengths. To this end, nationally recognized Principal Erik Burmeister challenged his staff to create week-long courses based on anything they felt especially passionate about.

The result was 43 vastly dif- the Army Corps of Engineers ferent courses encompassing Bay Model, Castle Rock Park, everything from scuba to bak- Elkhorn Slough, Angel Island, ing to design thinking to crime Blackhawk Museum, Stanford solving, and almost anything Anatomy Lab, Apple Computer else a child could dream of and Electronic Arts. learning.

experiment with new approaches to teaching. Math teacher Sayre Dolan spent his week leading a course called Outdoor Survival; students visited Hidden Villa Farm for ropes course and survival training, and had first aid and survival instruction from EMTs. The trip culminated with overnight camping at Memorial County Park. “The best part for me, as a teacher, was that kids were asked to go outside their comfort zones to experience things that they normally might not, meet new people and have experiences with different people than they would usually hang out with,” Mr. Dolan said. “I also loved the opportunity to get to know students that I don’t have in class and have a different perspective of the students than I get in the classroom.” Mini-courses creatively address the expressed desire of students to have more opportunities for engagement around topics that interest them. While parentchild communication during the middle school years may often leave kids rolling their eyes and parents wondering what

really goes on in those adolescent minds, during mini-course week the walls came down as students returned home effusive about what they learned and experienced. “I was lucky enough to have four eighth-grade boys over to our house after their first day of Behind the Scenes Sports,” parent Daren Tuchman said. “The boys came in gushing with excitement. Each one was fighting for airtime to share with me different stories from their day. “They loved hearing about the deaf athletes’ plights to overcome their adversity and succeed. They surely loved the Sports Illustrated columnist sharing his stories of encounters with famous athletes! As parents we all yearn for our kids to express details of their day at school —to have all four of these boys engaged with me for so long was fantastic!” The Behind the Scenes Sports course, taught by beloved Hillview PE teachers Harry Bell and Phil Eaton, toured the Stanford athletic facilities and AT&T Park.

S C H O O L S LEARNING BY DOING continued from page 21

The students were visited during the week by organizers from Special Olympics of Northern California, and by Friday had planned and produced their own sporting event for Encinal School’s special day class. Ms. Tuchman, a parent of a special needs student and a son in the Behind the Scenes Sports course, continued, “The boys were each sharing how they were going to help these kids and how ‘cool’ it was going to be!” Parent Timothy Harris enjoyed the enthusiasm from his children all week. “When I got home each night, I was greeted by children eager to show me photos on their phones of their day’s activities,” he said. “Yes — my children urged me to view content on their phones!” As a camping chaperone, he accompanied 60 students on an overnight trip to Memorial County Park. The opportunity to see teachers interacting with students in completely new ways was a highlight for him. “It was so invigorating to me, as a parent, to see professional educators use the camping setting and experience to teach important lessons,” he said. “Confidence, self-reliance, challenge, teamwork, inclusion,

problem solving, respect and exploration were among the many lessons taught.” As successful communities such as Menlo Park strive to graduate the next generation of leaders, too much stress can sometimes be put on the rigorous academic standards expected. A week of choice learning allows students to open their minds to lessons in essential skills and traits necessary for the work environment, like collaboration and resilience, without even knowing they are gaining that crucial knowledge. Social Studies teacher and golf enthusiast Marianne Santo led a course called Play It As It Lays, which met all week at the Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course. Ms. Santo said: “I really liked the character discussions that came out of my course. Given the nature of golf, we were able to highlight the importance of having good character, being honest, and respecting others using the game as the centerpiece.” A week immersed in a self-determined topic opens students to the possibilities of further involvement in their communities and helps put students in a state of mind ready to return to their academic classes with renewed energy. As eighthgrader Anna Baran said: “I

noticed that a lot of the courses, in a way, continue on after the week. After Caring for Critters, we may start volunteering at the Humane Society or other shelters. The week was extremely relaxing, especially because it was in the middle of a stressful time for eighth-graders. Not having to think about projects or homework the full week was

amazing. It was a great stressreliever. All I did the whole week was learn about things I had chosen to learn about.” School-community collaboration was in full force throughout the week.

Canada College student’s film to be featured at Cannes By Robert Hood, Canada College

A

chance meeting and a simple sneeze led a Canada College multimedia student to produce a five-minute film that will be featured at the Cannes Film Festival in France in May. Sir Wade Neistadt (Sir is his first name) was notified recently that his short film, “KERFLOOEY,” is one of 26 student-produced films that will be featured in the Short Film Corner, one of three main sections of the festival. In addition, his film, written by fellow student Melissa Loi, will be featured at Universal Studios in Hollywood in June as part of a three-day red carpet event when industry professionals host workshops and network with student filmmakers from around the country. The idea for the film came from Mr. Neistadt and Ms. Loi. “When I met Wade he was trying to add the psychology class I was already registered for,” Ms. Loi said. “He came into class and sneezed. I said ‘bless you.’ We paired up and became friends.” Mr. Neistadt, who grew up in Apple Valley and attended Granite Hills High School, transferred to Canada from CSU San Marcos because he wanted to be in Silicon Valley to pursue his dream of making films. “I researched community colleges in the area and Canada was the only school with both a good computer science program and multimedia program,” he said. He began refining his video editing and special effects skills under the tutelage of Canada faculty, who have worked at major studios such as Disney, Pixar and Wildbrain. “The storytelling the faculty has done over the years for those studios is experience that a motivated student can draw from,” said Paul Naas, program coordinator for the multimedia art and technology program. When Mr. Neistadt learned last November that Campus MovieFest, a student film festival, would be at Canada College to host a competition, he decided to enter. He ran into Ms. Loi, a graduate of Carlmont High School, who had an idea. “I thought it would be cool to

make a movie about a superhero, since everyone seems obsessed with comic book characters ... but maybe a superhero that can’t quite save the world at the moment.” The character Manly Man was born but, unlike most superheroes, he wasn’t invincible. He was fighting a cold at the same time he was battling the fearsome Madame Mayhem. As the story unfolds, every Manly Man sneeze brings Madame Mayhem closer to defeat while giving Mr. Neistadt an opportunity to display the special effects skills he refined in his multimedia classes. “Melissa wrote the story and it was brilliant,” Mr. Neistadt said. “I couldn’t have made this movie without her.” They entered their film in the Campus MovieFest competition at Canada and received a Silver Tripod Award for “Best Special Effects,” a Best Actor Award for Mr. Neistadt’s portrayal of Manly Man, and, to their amazement, the Best Picture Award. “At the campus awards ceremony, we were told that Campus MovieFest has the opportunity to send about 30 student films to the Cannes Film Festival,” Mr. Neistadt said. “I was shocked to find out our film was chosen.” Manly Man’s sneezes will lead Mr. Neistadt to the Villa Maupassant Hotel in the south of France May 12-26 for the film festival. “I still can’t believe this is happening,” he said.

There is something tangible and personal about holding the paper over your morning coffee that cannot be replaced by surfing the net. The paper provides a much richer experience because it is one of the key elements that define a community. Home buyers are buying the community as much as the house they are seeking. The importance of print advertising was never more apparent until recently when a luxury property I was preparing for the market was advertised in the Weekly and the Almanac. Soon after the ad appeared, we sold the home to the buyer who saw the ad and called her agent asking to see the home. Just like that. This is why I will continue to make advertising in the Weekly and the Almanac a key part of my marketing plan.
