Girls on Track

Matters Diabetes Education at Mercy Fitzgerald is an accredited program that has helped many individuals successfully manage diabetes.

DELAWARE COUNTY REGIONAL NEWS WINTER 2014/2015

E.T. Richardson Middle School is excited at the prospect of bringing the Girls on Track program to their student body starting the 2014/2015 academic year. Girls on Track is the middle school level of the popular Girls on the Run program, a non-profit organization that was launched in 1996 to address the specific needs of pre/adolescent girls. This organization has helped thousands of girls meet the challenge of adolescence through a comprehensive program that offers guidance and coaching on identifying strategies to ensure healthy physical and emotional well-being, strengthening decision making skills and developing goal setting skills. Through the twelve-week program, the girls meet twice weekly with their coaches, who deliver a set curriculum that explores important topics such as establishing positive relationships and boundaries, maintaining high self-esteem, the dangers of eating disorders and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle for both mind and body. Along with the various topics covered, physical activity is also incorporated throughout the program with the culminating activity of the group completing a 5k race. Throughout the sessions the girls work together to build a trusting environment where they can share ideas, push themselves to achieve personal goals and encourage each other to do their best. To run the program it is required that E.T. Richardson Middle School provides four adult coaches to deliver the curriculum, and provides the necessary level of support for the participants. The School plans to have two paid coaches from their Springfield School District staff and two parent volunteers. The coaches will attend an all-day training in January 2015 to ensure each person is equipped to deliver the curriculum appropriately. Girls on Track provides the curriculum and all necessary materials for the program. The school provides coaches and a dedicated indoor and outdoor space to conduct each session. Each student participant is required to pay a fee (typically $150, which could be subsidized for those in need if scholarship money is available). The fee covers the costs of curriculum, training for coaches, Girls on Track tee shirt and water bottle for each girl and the entrance fee for the 5k. Registration is completed online through the Girls on Track organization, and they manage the lottery should one be required. The School is looking to attain $3,000 to pay for two coaches and allow for up to four scholarships to be made available for students who cannot afford the registration fee. Please visit www.gotrpa.org/what-we-do/6th-8th-grade-program to learn more about Girls on Track and the benefits it provides for middle school girls. If you are interested in helping bring Girls on Track to the girls at E.T. Richardson Middle School, please contact Daniel Tracy at 610-938-6350 or by email at daniel.tracy@ssdcougars.org

A CULTURE SHIFT: HOW FOCUSING ON SUCCESS IS CHANGING LOCAL CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION

NUTURING A CULTURE OF SUCCESS:

ENHANCING TEACHING WITH GOOGLE GLASS

Changing the culture of a business is a lot like changing the culture of an educational institution – challenging. Delaware County Technical High Schools (DCTS) is shifting the educational culture from one of achievement to a Culture of Success for Delaware County’s students. There are many debates about the relationship between achievement and success. Often times student success is measured by achievements such as test scores, awards, and even attendance. Some would argue that these achievements are not measurements of student success, but mile markers along the path to success. The philosophy of DCTS is that student success is more than the sum total of one’s achievements. Student success is the bigger picture, a consideration of how well students will perform once they graduate high school. DCTS is a career and technical education center (CTC); the school’s mission is to prepare today’s high school students for tomorrow’s opportunities by providing innovative, meaningful technical training, a foundation for life-long learning and marketable credentials for high-wage, high demand careers.

The Framework To establish a culture of success, DCTS focuses on the process of teaching and learning. In traditional education, student achievement tends to be standardized. Specifically in CTE, student achievement is measured by end-of-program assessments, which test student performance and theoretical knowledge in their Program of Study. Under the leadership of Administrative Director, Dr. Philip Lachimia, DCTS’ student achievement has increased steadily over the last 5 years. In fact, in 2011 DCTS was one of the highest performing CTE schools in the State for student performance on the end-of-program assessments. However, these assessments are just a part of the process and only one facet of the bigger picture of student pathways to success. DCTS measures success by student-preparedness for the “real world” after graduation, asking questions such as: do students have the technical skills to succeed in a high-skill, high-demand industry and do they have the 21st Century skills to thrive in the workplace or a post-secondary degree program? By providing experiential 8

COVER FEATURE work-based learning opportunities like mentoring and shadowing with business education partners such as Shore-Snyder Dental & Folsom Tool, DCTS focuses on the growth of the whole student.

Culture of Success Interdisciplinary teams meet monthly in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) where data is used to drive instructional decisions that improve student learning and create a Culture of Success for students. Through the wisdom of this diverse group, professional development is individualized and CTE instructors reflect on their practice, receive training on instruction strategies, promote their individual growth and consequently that of their students. DCTS is always looking to improve the practice of professional staff and to identify ways to continuously improve the teaching/learning process. One way that was introduced this year is the development of Individual Student Learning Guides that enable students to become independent learners. “This is contrary to the dated belief that students are empty vessels to be filled by teachers. The teacher is actually an activator or facilitator of knowledge. Through this process students take ownership of their own learning,” states Dr. Lachimia.

Connecting with today’s students in their own language extends beyond verbal communication. The Automotive Technology program uses the social learning platform, Edmodo, (which emits a navigational feel similar to Facebook) to augment traditional classroom experiences. Instructors Bill Jenkins and Pete Dillon use Edmodo to share school news, assignments, resources, and even give quizzes, freeing up class time for instruction. “The automotive industry is more advanced and technical than it’s ever been and to successfully enter this workforce, students need to be able to improve their literacy, math, and science skills; most importantly critical thinking and problem solving skills,” says Mr. Jenkins.

The Culture of Success in the Real World The new Engineering Technologies program instructor, Rock Durant, hopes to encourage critical thinking skills and perspective taking within students by teaching them both sides of the engineering process: theory and manufacturing. The new program is acquiring the latest equipment and technologies; one of the most exciting is the 3D printer. Students are learning to use Computer-

Technology’s Place in a Culture of Success One way to change the process of learning is through technology. DCTS was awarded a grant from Boeing to purchase Google Glass, a wearable computer fashioned like glasses. This technology will allow students to access pieces of the learning guides, which prepare them to earn industry certifications without the need to leave their workstation. The use of Google Glass in the classroom challenges instructors’ creativity, as they decide what pieces of the curriculum are best suited for the technology and will also meet student needs. Google Glass will be piloted in select DCTS programs: Computer Networking & Digital Forensics, Dental Technology, Automotive Technology, Cosmetology and Early Childhood Education (ECE). Cosmetology instructor, Rachel Moir, plans to use Google Glass to teach specific practical skills, such as French braiding using video, photos, and step-bystep instructions. Ms. Moir DCTS’ focus on technology did not create her own video in education provides for the French Braid lesson explaining that, “Every innovative, meaningful instructor does things diftraining that gives students ferently with the same result. It is nice for students to see the skills needed for highhow other teachers do income, high-demand things, it widens the perspective of the student.” The careers in today’s ECE program runs a partcompetitive workforce. day preschool. Instructor, Erin Sparacio, plans to use Google Glass to help ECE student-teachers formally observe and assess preschool children. “Student-teachers have to consider visual and language cues when communicating with preschool age children. Too often adults interfere with a child’s problem solving and the use of Google Glass will help encourage objective observation from students in a way unlike before,” says Ms. Sparacio. DELAWARE COUNTY REGIONAL NEWS WINTER 2014/2015

PREPARING FOR REAL WORLD SUCCESS:

MEETING WORKFORCE NEEDS THROUGH TECHNOLOGIES SUCH AS 3D PRINTING Aided Design (CAD) software to operate the 3D printer. Mr. Durant hopes to forge community/business relationships within the biomedical engineering industry to take on real-life projects using 3D printing technology so students will make connections between the work they do in the classroom and the real world. Career and technical education (CTE) is critical to meet the workforce needs of the United States and to meet the needs of college and career-ready students embarking on a path towards success beyond high school. However, CTE has an image problem that prevents the community from fully understanding its value. In Delaware County the misperception of CTE partly results in schools that have a capacity for over 1,000 students to operate with enrollments of less than 500. Students simply are not enrolling in the programs. There are at least 1,000 more students in Delaware County who may thrive in a culture of success, and Delaware County Technical High Schools welcomes them. If you are reading this and wondering, “How can I help with the CTE image problem?,” it could be as simple as asking a friend to consider the relationship between success and achievement and then telling them about Delaware County Technical High Schools.
