Northwestern Oklahoma State University Principals and Methods of Teaching students speak to a group of sixth graders about a career in education at the Career Connections Fair hosted by Northwest Technology Center.
Students in the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Principals and Methods
of Teaching class were invited to a Career Connections Fair at the Northwest
Technology Center, Alva campus, on Nov. 21 to communicate with nearly 200 sixth
grade students from eight area schools about a career in education.
“The class developed a creative activity designed to engage the career fair
participants to work collaboratively and use critical thinking skills to
accomplish challenging small group tasks,” Connie Jacobs, instructor of
education, said. “The objective was to provide an environment that
motivated the youth to apply skills that are also necessary as an
effective teacher. At the end of each session, the Northwestern students
led the sixth graders in a group discussion about the traits successful
teachers must possess. It was a fun and rewarding day for the sixth
graders, as well as the college students.”
The Northwestern students who participated at the career fair included Cash
Anthony, Blackwell senior; Mathew Blundell, Kingfisher senior; Yesenia
Buckhaults, Buffalo senior; Jessica Butzback, Blackwell senior; Josi Hasenauer,
Wallace, Neb., senior; Kyler Patterson, Ames senior; Ashley Ross, Enid senior;
and Carrie Vega-Hughes, Enid senior.
