I had all of my students create Google docs and share them with me so that I can review their progress with research over the break. I plan to bring in guest speakers when they return to school in January so as to make their topics more interesting and also discuss career pathways in relation to their topics.
Weekly CHI Staff Reflections
One strategy that I would use with my students is to incorporate a holiday or winter related theme to keep the students attentive and productive. Perhaps conducting a SOLE session with a question such as “Is Winter Weather a barrier to health care?” or “Does climate change impact health?” or “How does cold weather affect your health?” I might also try a holiday related STEM activity with my students, such as Gumdrop Christmas Trees. Just a few supplies, red and green gumdrops and toothpicks! May the best HPAC Scholar win bragging rights!
