Students need life skills. Some schools are adding in courses to
help students cook, care for their families, manage their money and
more life skills. Others have always had these courses. Today we
interview a teacher, Andrea Moore, who started her career as a
literature teacher but teaches many practical things to her
students every day.
The U.S. Toyota Dream Car Art
Contest invites youth, ages 4-15, to submit their original
hand-drawn artworks that answer the question, “If you could design
a car to make the world a better place, what would it look like?”
Artwork submissions for this free youth art contest are accepted
this year from November 1, 2019, through January 31, 2020. Teachers
can download a FREE K-12 standards-aligned lesson plan on car
design that includes STEM concepts and art. Go to www.ToyotaDreamCarUSA.com/CoolCat
to download artwork guidelines, an entry form, official rules, and
the lesson plan today. Encourage your students to create Toyota
Dream Car artworks today.
Does your school teach life skills? Do your students know how
to cook? Have conversations with your students and among your staff
if your school is equipping students for real life.
