Sandy Hillman, EC Director and CGHS Assistant Principal
Greetings from The EC @ CG, By now our EC Scholars should be settled into their second semester schedule. Mid-term grades for the third nine weeks were available last week so students should have a good feel for where they stand. It is this time of year when some students become unfocused which is reflected in their academic achievement. So, please monitor and encourage your students to not let their grades fall. As students are working on the HS Academic Honors Diploma, maintaining a GPA of over 3.0 is a must. We are finishing scheduling conferences with our current juniors and are giving special attention to their college degree/certificate requirements. Students need to be proactive to seek out answers to any questions bout degree requirements. Please contact Mrs. Chaplin or Mrs. Weeks for additional information. In this month's newsletter, we are featuring our English and Business Departments. Enjoy reading about what your students are studying in their EC classes.

News from Mr. Stuckmeyer, Adjunct for VU Intro to Management 100: Students are currently moving through our Economics unit. During the unit, students have begun to understand how different economies answer the basic economic questions and the characteristics of the free enterprise system versus a command economy. Students also have learned how competition affects our capitalistic system and the different types of competition among specific industries. Kevin Stuckmeyer Business Teacher/Adjunct
Currently, students are studying the realm of international business, methods of entry a business can take to enter into the international marketplace, and how trade agreements help influence international business. Students will be presenting an International Business project based on a country of their choosing, as well as, interacting in a negotiating exercise among different countries with different resources. Once we move through Economics we will be studying business ethics and the practice of sound ethical decision making.
In VU ACCT 100, students have started the second semester learning how to account for business transactions involving a Merchandise Corporation. Recording Purchases, Sales, Cash Payments and Receipts in specialized journals is a very realistic approach to relevant business situations. They have also been working through cash proofs and controls. Our online workbook/curriculum is a great way for them to use technology in a meaningful way. As we wrapup this unit, we're quickly getting ready to account for payroll and learning all about employee taxes. Chad Daniels Business Teacher/Adjunct
Business/English Collaborative Project
Katie DeArmitt English Teacher/Adjunct
Over the next couple of weeks, the EC freshmen will be working on a collaborative project between their English class and COMP110 class. The students have finished reading Enrique's Journey in their English class. In COMP110, the students are learning Word and are required to write a Business letter. Therefore, the two standards will be combined and the students will be writing a letter to a school board member about the memoir. Mrs. DeArmitt will be grading the content of the letter while Mrs. Buck will be grading the format of the letter. A draft of the letter is due Wednesday, February 15 (Red) or Thursday, February 16 (White). The final letter is due in COMP110 by Wednesday, February 22 (Red) or Thursday, February 23 (White) and a PRINTED copy is due in English by Thursday, February 23 at 3:00 p.m. Other COMP110 news
Tracy Buck Business Teacher/Adjunct
On Thursday, March 2 (Red) or Friday, March 3 (White), the COMP110 students will be taking the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist) Word Certification Exam. This exam is provided free to the students through a grant from the Department of Education's Imagine Academy. Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification is the premier credential chosen by individuals seeking to validate their skills and advance their careers. Some of the benefits of the MOS certification include: Achieve industry-recognized certification Learn the computing skills companies are looking for Boost your workforce resume Differentiate yourself from other applicants Gain valuable experience and confidence Heighten your earning potential Prepare yourself for a successful future Students must score 700 (out of a 1000) or higher in order to pass the exam. The students have learned the skills on the exam over the last several weeks. The exam will not count as a grade in class. However, if a student passes the exam then he/she will not have to take the Word section of the Final Exam in the spring.
Melissa Warner English Teacher
American Studies sophomores are beginning the Civil Rights unit, which includes reading To Kill a Mockingbird. This is one of our longer units of the year, and we will be studying these topics through Spring Break. We have already had a great class discussion over racism and how racism can be portrayed both in history and today. On the history side of things we will be looking at many Civil Rights leaders and movements: from Martin Luther King to Malcolm X, from the Birmingham Bus Boycott to the Freedom Summer. Students will read several primary source documents and analyze speeches and photographs from this time period. On the English side of things, students will write both a creative narrative and a literary analysis essay in conjunction with the novel. We will really focus on theme and character development, as well as symbolism as we read our novel. A word of advice - READ! Because of the length of this novel and how the calendar falls, this novel will span two grading
periods, meaning students can positively (or negatively) impact their grade in both the third and fourth 9 weeks with this novel and the activities/essays that go along with it.
In COMM 143 we are beginning our first speeches of the year. Students are excited to begin executing speeches and learning about communication. After narrative speeches, we will begin using visual aids and research to create more polished speeches. The upcoming etiquette lunch will also be a highlight of the semester on March 15th. Students will learn proper dining etiquette. The EC Boosters have graciously donated funds to help make this happen. We appreciate their support again. Karen Gerhart Speech Teacher/Adjunct
In VU English Composition, our juniors are busy completing research for their papers and Genius Hour projects. Genius Hour is officially underway! Students are busy sending out professional business letters to potential mentors as well as starting the work on the projects! We have students working on self-defense workshops for students, claymation videos, home run derby contests, sign language workshops, mentoring with elementary students, and 3-on-3 basketball tournaments! It's going to be a very exciting spring for our students and the community! Lesley McDougal English Teacher/Adjunct
In English 11, our students are busy researching innovators, explorers, and adventure-seekers as we read and study Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer. We are also working on a class Google Lit Map, tracing the journey of Chris McCandless prior to his death. Students are adding photos, reflections, and informative journals explaining the importance and connections to this informative nonfiction text. We will also do a film and song analysis over Into the Wild, studying the lyrics and music written by Eddie Vedder and analyzing the film and portrayal of Chris McCandless.
The VU LITR 221 class, World Literature, just completed the reading of Voltaire's Candide and are beginning the next classic, Moliere's Tartuffe. By reading these classics, the students are demonstrating critical thinking at a truly collegiate level and are recognizing the value of reading such works. As always, I am impressed with our EC scholars and their ability to engage in complex dialogue.
Krista Hensley English Teacher/Adjunct
The VU ENGL 202 class, Creative Writing, have been actively working on creating their required blogs on WordPress. While I do have several requirements for these blogs, the students are encouraged to individualize their blogs based on their own interests. Many of the students have already embraced the creativity, their passions already
