ECHS Blended Learning Showcase
El Capitan Social Studies teachers, Mr. Jason Schneider and Mrs. Cara Birmingham showcased how their department is working collaboratively to provide innovative learning experiences for students. They shared how they provide engaging, relevant learning opportunities which include Project-Based lessons, game-based units, and learning menus, all of which provides students with voice and choice in their learning. Principal Shaw thanked the board for supporting and encouraging this organic process for teachers to grow, learn, and try new teaching strategies to best serve students and explained that the Social Studies department is just one example of ECHS teachers working together to try new things. Both teachers attributed their success to the daily collaboration on campus and the support from admin. Mrs. Birmingham said that it was "nice to be allowed to go and try new things and not be afraid to fail. We're modeling what we want students to do."
