This week the Senior Students visited Karma Food Coop with a different perspective. Asked to treat the visit as a 'job interview', the students were asked to demonstrate positive work attitudes that might help them to 'stand out' in the workplace. The students were incredible! "Responsible, positive, cooperative and respectful" were words the manager of the Coop used to describe the students. As a bonus, the students earned extra (imaginary) cash to spend in The Real Game we have been using.
In the Junior Class, the students have been discussing and learning about various elements of a community, from the roles of community members to the infrastructure of sidewalks and public pools! In groups, the students have been collaborating to build their own vision of a well organized, successful city.
