New Cohort, New Priorities

Hello, students of the seniors' class.

We have a new mix of students, and our recent needs assessment shows that we as a group have new priorities. The survey results show that the most popular topics were, in this order:
  1.  The English articles system
  2.  Canada and citizenship (rights and duties, anthem)
  3.  Legal Aid
  4.  How to use an ATM
  5.  Hospital Safety
As for activities, I got a surprise! Eighty percent of you want to use iPads weekly. The majority of you want to go to the computer lab either weekly or now and then. What would you say to going to the lab (for one hour) on weeks when we have a Friday class and using the iPads during weeks when there will not be a Friday class?

We've said in the past that we all like field trips in good weather and we like occasional guest speakers, so I will continue with those. Let me know if you have ideas for places to visit. We have to limit these trips to places within walking distance unless everyone has a bus pass.


P.S. Here is a little clip that expands on what we were talking about in class regarding gun laws in the U.S.
