    S2E16 Outdoor Learning with Marie Snyder

    I (along with a team of educators) am involved in innovative education! It's an outdoor learning opportunity for fifth-grade students. We would love to get our adventure in education noticed throughout the state. I would suggest interviewing us as a group. We are partnered with Fish and Wildlife and our outdoor opportunities are at Sullys Hill National Wildlife Refuge. Thursday we have conferences in the afternoon.

    S3EP14 Service Learning Empowers Students and Impacts Communities

    S3EP14 Service Learning Empowers Students and Impacts Communities

    In this episode, I talk to Nikki Doll and two of her students—Teegan Henke and Shelby Meckle—about service learning.

    You’ll hear about how service learning impacts the community and students—and how it sets a foundation for building 21st Century skills. The students find needs in the community—or world—and look to fill the voids through projects, teamwork and collaboration.

    S2EP12 West Fargo's Student-Led Literary Magazine

    S2EP12 West Fargo's Student-Led Literary Magazine

    Beatrice Hill is in her fifth year at West Fargo high school teaching English language arts. During her first year, she was approached by students who wanted to begin a literary magazine. Hill allows the students to take the lead on every aspect of the magazine, from providing content and page design to seeking out fundraising sources and including advertising. Hill says she serves as an advisor and says when the students run into problems they develop the skills to problem solve.

    Hill says she comes from a long line of teachers and that education has been really valued within my family. She says she not only comes from a line of exceptional teachers, but she’s also had the privilege of being taught by exceptional teachers. She believes that every teacher she’s had along the way has inspired her in some capacity and has influenced her to help her get where she is today.
