LC CONWAY CHRONICLES Conway freshmen learn about real life BREANNA THOMPSON CONWAY CHRONICLES

On Oct. 2, instead of having an assembly with all of the students, the freshmen had a REALL simulation. REALL stands for Reality Enrichment and Life Lessons. Volunteers came from the community and helped the students gain life lessons. Each student was given a family name and scenarios. This simulation is teaching students how to pay bills, go to the store, taking care of kids and working all at the same time. Around the gym there were tables where at least two volunteers sat. Each table was a place such as a bank, grocery store, social services, daycare, electric company, loan company and other things. The students spent four weeks in each scenario and only got 15 minutes a week for the first scenario. Students had to figure out how to get everything they needed to get done in one week, done in 15 minutes. That meant for some students dropping your kids off before work and paying off your monthly bills. Also some would have to try and find a job. The first packet the students opened was the

reactive part. Most of the students in this scenario were in debt, had kids to take care of, possibly in trouble with the law, un-employed and had food stamps. So as you can imagine, all of the students were very stressed. If you’re in debt and don’t have a job, how could you pay for your bills or child support, or anything like that? It really made the students realize that every decision you make affects your future. “During the reactive part there was a lot of frustration, some stress, and anger, but it was a good experience to get to learn what it is going to look like in the future. Seeing the way you can spend your money and use it wisely is important and this activity helped students understand that,” stated Rebecca Strubbe.  The next packet students opened was the proactive part. In this scenario the students h a d e n o u g h m o n e y, good jobs, a car and some extra money. With this scenario, they were able to get things done and pay off bills. The students learned that by finishing high school, getting good jobs, and taking care of yourself
