Exploring Teaching I & Exploring Teaching II
Exploring Teaching I provides students with an introduction to teaching at the elementary, middle, and high school level. Students will plan a wide variety of learning activities and assessments for the subject of their interest and their desired classroom age level. They will be given the opportunity to present their lessons to their fellow students in the Exploring Teaching class and then to actual classes in the elementary and middle high school. Classroom visits will be arranged for the high school students to observe their desired age group of students and the professional teachers in action.
Exploring Teaching II provides extensive “hands-on” teaching experience at the Pre-K (Early Childhood), K-3 Elementary, 3-6 Elementary, Jr. High and High School levels. Students will have the opportunity to plan numerous lessons and learning activities for their “teaching experiences” under the guidance of the Exploring Teaching instructor and then practice teaching these lessons during actual classroom time at one of the schools in the Seaman district. Teaching will be observed and evaluated by the high school Exploring Teaching instructor.
Freshman Needs Assessment
The Freshman Needs Assessment is given to all students to target social-emotional and academic areas of concern. It's a simple way for the freshman counselor to get to know the new group of students and to get a sense of what their major needs/concerns are. It also gives the students a simple way to reach out to the freshman counselor at the beginning of the school year. After the students complete the needs assessment, the freshman counselor reviews the data and shares overall statistics with staff. She immediately calls in the students with what would be considered "major concerns". She then reaches out to the students who requested to visit with her. As the year progress, she gets the other students called in and will periodically reference their assessment in their conversations.
Freshman Transition Program
The Seaman Freshman Center serves as a transition program for students as they move from the middle to high school level. The SFC supports students by placing them on teacher teams as the students make the adjustment to the high school level. Teams of teachers regularly meet throughout the week to discuss students and develop student plans for improvement when needed.
Students who have completed the appropriate course work are allowed to enroll and help build the Habitat House.
