Auto Shop: Way More than Grease Monkeys

By Sarah Powley, Education Coach • Jul 1st, 2015
While 70% of the time students are engaged in hands-on work with vehicles, this class is nothing like the “auto shop” stereotype of twenty-five years ago when Mr. Jakes first began teaching. In the first place, the students use an online textbook. “In the day,” Mr. Jakes told me, “there were no textbooks. A student would once in a while look in a service manual to figure out what was wrong with a vehicle and how to fix it.” Because cars today operate on computers, service technicians must have sharp reading skills and advanced technology skills to diagnose and repair the vehicles that come into a shop. Repairing cars is no longer a trial and error business, and a laptop computer is a standard part of a service technician’s toolbox.

Simulated Economy in Middle Grades – “Adams School of Economics”

By Todd R. Nelson • Jul 1st, 2015
Let’s just say that economics begin when the hunter-gatherers decide to settle down and farm. Oh, sure, nomadic tribes trading with one another, or even swapping herds of cattle and sheep from glen to glen to prevent over-grazing in the highlands (also known as rustling) have a certain rough system of exchanging resources. But in 7-8th grade social studies we’re examining economic settlements, not the free-range variety. We have been simulating economic systems beginning with a simple, agrarian economy: 7 farms, each with three fields and two farmers, a standard yield of 5 conkers per field. Harmony. Sustainability. No money. No fancy technology. The known agrarian micro-world has enough food for its population and everyone is surviving just fine. There are no defined borders or awareness of neighboring states. Sustainability, however, is hard to achieve and hard to maintain. How long can this last? The "Adams School of Economics" is simulating models that are dynamic.
