Including & Shadowing - Highlights for Dec. 4 - 10, 2012

Highlights

Imagine buttoning your shirt with thick tube socks on both hands, writing words while looking at your paper in a mirror, or following complicated verbal dot-to-dot instructions amidst background noise and other conversations. These are some of the ability simulations that Miraloma Elementary students will try during National Inclusive Schools week. Miraloma’s theme this year is “Superhero Rainbow,” and students will make their own superhero capes with words or pictures that explain how they will use their power to help people feel included. National Inclusive Schools week was created to focus on the progress that schools are making to provide a quality education to an increasingly diverse student population that includes those who tend to be marginalized due to things such as a disability.

When:              Wednesday, December 5 / 10:00- 11:00 a.m.
Where:            Miraloma ES / 175 Omar Way

In an increasingly competitive job and college market, many students in SFUSD Academies and Pathways are getting a genuine head start in choosing a career while still in high school. Students who participate in SFUSD Academies and Pathway programs have access to job shadowing opportunities and a paid internship in the industry sector they are studying. SFUSD and San Francisco partners have been providing these jobs and experiences for over ten years, and this year, additional organizations are being asked to join. In a kick-off event, students in the Hospitality & Tourism, Culinary Pathway will share soups they created, while others such as Engineering, Information Technology and more will be showing off their work in computer presentations and videos. SFUSD Career Academies and Pathways expose students to different career fields, and its courses stress hands-on, project-based learning to provide an authentic, real-world educational and work-based learning experience.

When:      Thursday, December 6 / 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Where:     Westin St. Francis Hotel / 355 Powell Street / Elizabethan Room
