You will use your research, notes, and categories to create a Student Made Learning Center for PreAP/AP students to utilize at Klein Forest. Using your categories, you will create an interactive display with puzzles, games, and activities for Klein Forest students to use to assist them with high school and college academic success. Find or make pictures, diagrams, photos, charts and tips to decorate the learning center. You will present your learning center to your Summer SOAR class.
Your Summer SOAR teacher will provide you with a copy of your rubric.
Great job on working toward academic success this summer! Not only have you researched what it takes to succeed in high school and college, but you have also assisted Klein Forest Golden Eagles as well!!!
