Teacher Licensure Orientation Weekend Seminar

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

Eight students and Professor Crawford traveled to the Metzger Nature Center last weekend to discuss using sport to teach the Social Studies, and the National Council for the Social Studies Ten Themes.  After a hard day's work on Saturday, the group went to the theater in New Philadelphia to watch The Blind Side, a heartwarming story of a family that took in a homeless teenager who became an outstanding football player for Old Miss, and who now plays for the Baltimore Ravens. 

Students who participated in weekend seminar were (front row L-R) Beth Miller, Caitlin Kegley, Tom Walton, and (back L-R) Trey Jones, Ben Nauman, Andy Zaebst, Ryan Fleming, and Zach Esterline.  Professor Crawford is at the far right.  As part of the program, students created and presented lesson plans to use sport in teaching the Social Studies.  Keep your eye on this blog for their plans in the coming months. 

As usual, Wayne and Carol King fed us more great food than we could eat!

Well done to all the students who took part!
