High School Summer School In-Person Elective Course Offerings
Description: A few high school elective courses have been proposed, but are only able to be offered if enough students sign up for the class. If you are interested in one of these courses, we encourage you to invite a friend to join to promote the class!
Students will start the course by learning the most basic crochet stitches (chaining, single crochet, double crochet). From there, students will learn how to read crochet patterns and will get to choose from an array of patterns that I provide. The course will be highly differentiated as students will choose projects that appeal to them. There may be class-wide shared projects as well, such as creating a class-quilt made from Granny Squares.
Of Tabletop Role-Playing
Are you a fan of The Legend of Vox Machina? A loyal follower of Critical Role? Are your nights and weekends filled with images of dice, dragons, and dungeons? Or do you just want to know what this whole Fantasy Role-Playing hobby is about? Join us this summer for a fun course called The Origins of Tabletop Role-Playing! We will explore the fascinating history and evolution of the RPG phenomenon - from miniature wargames all the way up to today's story-based role-playing experience. Along the way, we'll sample the various games that established the hobby - leading up to the creation of our own collaborative campaign world, filled with unique characters and engaging stories, inspired by today's most popular gaming shows.
In this course you will learn the basics of cake decorating! We will begin by baking cakes from scratch, and learn how to torte, fill, and layer them. We will then learn how to make frosting and methods of how to frost cakes. In addition, we will learn how to create borders, write with icing, and decorate our cakes with a variety of decorating techniques. We will make multiple cakes throughout the summer school session that you will get to take home!
