Welcome to Mrs. Winslow's CTE classroom. CTE Stands for Career and Technical Education. Should the district call an inclement weather day, where students do not report to school, please have your child log into his/her Google Classroom for my course to find the assignment for the day. This will help us to stay on track for finishing the curriculum within the quarter. The course codes for my Google Classrooms are: 6th grade Career Decisions - r940nd, 7th grade Biotechnology - x7eenkz, 8th grade Exploring Technology Systems - eiz6p7.

Ms. Winslow teachers Career and Technical Education to 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Sixth graders study Career Decisions, 7th graders study Biotechnology and 8th graders study Exploring Technology systems. Career Decisions includes learning about different careers and the education it takes to achieve the career. We also look into the salary range, the nature of the work and the job outlook for different careers. All of this plus how to fillout an application and write a resume to interviewing for a job are included in this course. We study laws in the workplace and civil rights as well.
Biotechnology is a a hands on, laboratory based class where students can explore technology and science. Topics studied include: The cell, genetics, hematology, microbiology, the heart and kidneys, parasites as well as medical ethics, scientists and history of medicine. The main goal of this course is to introduce students to scientific technique and the proper way to read and follow a proceedure.
Technology Systems is a combination of different modules: Constuction systems, manufacturing, transportation, and energy. In this course have several different projects that help the students understand the concepts taught as well as learning skills to build different things.
Mrs. Winslow and Mr. Ausburn Co-sponsor the Robotics team. This a an after school function made up of about 10 students who learn to program the Lego EV3 Mindstorm Robots to do various tasks. These students go on to compete in regional and state robotics cpmpetitions in the state. The team is totally student lead.
