EXPERIENCES WITH FOODS   1st - 4th PERIODS    Room H156
 
FINAL EXAM DUE May 14th 
If turned in by April 23rd, you earn 20 bonus points that you can apply to your nine weeks grade.  Final exam project must be of "A" quality or it will be returned and no bonus points will be awarded.   
  
Experience with Foods is an application lab class. All labs reflect the topic we are currently studying. Labs are graded and students are expected to sample what they prepare. Missed labs must be made up at home and 4 pictures of the student preparing the item and final product must be turned in to get credit of missed labs. We will focus on nutrition and how what we eat affects our body now and in the future. I encourge all students to be open minded about what they eat, why they eat what they eat and what they should eat.
Final exam is an action project that is done at home. The exam is a practical application of the skills gained in the class. This final is due May 14th and is not accepted late.

First Semester Classes for 2012-2013:
 

LINC INTERNSHIP PROGRAM and    Career and College Readiness 

1st PERIOD  ROOM H122  

 
Students in LINC and Career and College Readiness:

Students complete course work related to career development and life planning during this semester class. They will spend time identifying their passions, skills and interests to determine possible careers to research. Then they will research various post-secondary options and scholarships they could apply for to assist with financing their post-secondary education. Each student will compile a portfolio containing a resume, cover letter, career narrative, verification of employability skills, activities check list, and other writing samples. Local business people come to the school to provide a mock interview for each student. Parents are always welcome to come in and share their personal career experiences with our students.

Students accepted into the LINC INTERNSHIP PROGRAM:
  

Student will prepare for and complete an internship of 100 hours with a local business during a time that is convenient to the individual student's schedule. This can be completed during the school year and/or the summer following their junior year. These internships provide real world experiences that are not available in a classroom setting. The student, their parents and the teacher work together to secure an internship placement. Students receive 1/2 credit for the course and 1/2 credit for the internship. With the economy and job market the way they are today, most internships are unpaid, but still very valuable for the real world experience the student gains. A very few companies offer paid internships which provide a $900.00 stipend. These funds are deposited in a special fund with the Gahanna Area Education Foundation and the student can apply for this money to help pay for their post-secondary education.

Missed labs must be made up at home and a small sample brought in or 4 pictures of the student preparing the item and final product.
