In preparation for the field experience, Amie Barton's Cadets prepared and taught lessons to their peers. Alaisha Guinyard taught a mini-lesson on Author's Purpose, helping her students understand how an author can entertain, inform, or persuade his audience. Shamya Smith's integrated math and science lesson on Odd and Even Numbers/Plants began with a "nature walk," without leaving the classroom! Shamya distributed leaves to her students and asked them to count and record the number of veins on the leaf. Sterlyn Evans used IXL to present his lesson on the Basic Functions of Government. Local, state, and national government roles were reviewed by students in a game-like fashion. Not pictured is Qamariah White, who taught a lesson on Context Clues. Her students used clue words (like, called, such as, known as, meaning, or, include) to determine the meaning of an unknown word.
