Mr. McNeill - Industrial Tech

We are well into our CAD unit (Computer Aided Drafting). Students have been using a computer to draw with. They are finding that this system is a huge technological advancement. The students are finding that there are patterns to CAD drawings and the use of the pattern help produce drawings rather quickly at the onset of the unit. 




  

Mrs. Primmer- Resource

Students that are on Individual Education Plans are working on their monthly skills and probes. We are also doing skill building activities from Story Works and Scholastic Action Magazines. Students have also been practicing skills in writing. This year the students will also be working on a Web-Site called Moby Max. This website works on students current skills deficits and will help them gain core curriculum knowledge.
