“How to….” Practical Skills for Life

This class will be filled with daily experiential activities to build a student’s skills for daily living as well as the future. Topics will include everything from changing a tire on a car to folding a fitted sheet. The majority of activities will be learning by doing. Each day will have a theme. Some themes included are: basic car maintenance, meal preparation, home repair, sewing skills, taking care of your belongings, basic budgeting, and other themes suggested by students. Each student will also be teaching a skill that they can share others. The possibilities are endless! In addition to activities on campus, students will have several local field trips where they can experience “real life situations” in which they will need to practice their new skills (ex. How much do you tip at a restaurant?, etc.) A ½ credit in wellness can be earned.

Instructors: Mrs. Speicher and Mr. Pina
