Makerspace 'Making' it Work

It’s that time during the school year when high school seniors are faced with the daunting inevitability of “adulting.”

Henry County High School English and Life 101 teacher Jerilyn Vaught worked with Media Specialist Librarian Rachel Burgin to create a project-based learning unit that would help students recognize and develop some of the skills they’ll need in the next phase of their lives.

“The whole process allowed students to practice not only technology and literacy skills through research and reflection, but also real-world skills of breaking down complicated tasks into simple steps, setting deadlines, and figuring out how to prioritize,” Burgin said.

WestPoint West Point visits HCHS

Cadets and professors from the United States Military Academy arranged a visit to Henry County High School today to share their love of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with our students. Major David Harness, a former teacher at HCHS and current assistant professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at West Point, made the visit possible.

Harness spent his day in Adam Knust's classroom teaching a math lesson, West Point style.

Other instructors and cadets worked with a group of students in the library on a series of hands-on projects focused on electricity, coding and building various types of circuits.

The group spent their lunch with our Junior Air Force ROTC cadets, sharing their experiences of West Point with them.

We appreciate their time and efforts to provide an enriched learning experience for our students! For more photos, please visit the district's Facebook page or click the Facebook link below.

Nearpod Sharing their Expertise

As students and learning styles change, teachers must adapt to fit the needs of their classroom, even though the foundational content remains the same. Fortunately, modern technology provides new tools and resources to help teachers continuous modernize their methods.

Henry County High School (HCHS) Librarian Rachel Burgin and Senior English Teacher Jerilyn Vaught will be presenting at this year’s Kentucky Society for Technology in Education (KySTE) Conference on Nearpod tools.

This year their presentation is titled “Nifty Nearpod!” to match the conference’s “Vintage to Virtual” theme. Nearpod, a website for K-12 teachers, engages students in interactive lessons across all content areas that include virtual reality tours and videos, along with various tools and online activities such as quizzes, drawing boards, collaboration boards and polls.
