club tips

The following are a few tips and words of wisdom from our club Advisors!

  • Meeting times were tough when we were competing for many after school activities. I learned meetings need to be well advertised and need to have fun activities that students can relate to.
» Patty Dick, Blatchley Middle School in Sitka
  • All club members participated in designing the lessons using the standards (Alaska Cultural Standards). They shared the responsibilities and wrote reflections on their experience. From this experience I definitely learned to give the kids more freedom. I just sat back and let them lead it.

  • Students loved acting as teacher assistants at the elementary school, as their job shadowing experience with elementary teachers for a day.
