Dr. George Teaches About the Heart

Dr. Dichelle George conducted the Bradley County Homeschool Group (Wired Homeschoolers) monthly STEM Workshop.  She explained that our hearts are about as big as our fists, how many times a day our hearts beat, how much blood it pumps a day, and the process of how the heart pumps the blood through the body.  Then she took them step by step through dissecting sheep's hearts, and explained each part of the heart and how it works.

Thank you Dr. Dichelle George for an awesome presentation and taking your time to share your expertise!

Cameron Cobb points out the ways in which personalized learning benefits him at WHS.
Students, teachers, administration and the public were recently invited to a public meeting concerning personalized learning at Warren High School.  The meeting was conducted may 25th in the school media center.

Those in attendance had some time to meet and greet prior to the official program.  A brief history of personalized learning at Warren high School was discussed and then teachers and students talked about their experiences.  A time for questions was allowed.

The general consensus was that the program gives students time to learn and allows teachers some flexibility in teaching.  It also allows students to move ahead at their own pace while mandating they meet learning goals.
