Thank you for a great year, and an amazing 4 years in our Academy. It has been a privilege to teach you and watch you grow over your high school careers. I know you will all grow more and become the amazing servant leaders we hoped you could.---Mr. Siecke
*Discussion Board Topic*
Please share with the group one lesson, assignment, trip, or story from your time in Focus at Burke that impacted you. Talk about how the four year program has shaped you and changed you and what it means to you. Please add those thoughts in the comments.
Welcome to the final semester here at Burke High School and in the Focus Academy! I know you are all counting the days, but remember that this semester is important for you to finish strong and achieve your goals.
For this discussion board, I want you to tell your classmates about a time in your internship that you were put into a leadership role. It could be either voluntary or a forced situation where leadership was required.
Make sure to describe the situation in detail so your classmates can get a clear picture of what happened. Also, remember to add meaningful content to the discussion by please including 2 comments on your classmates' posts.
Reflect back on what happened this semester at your internship. How did you use skills developed in the Focus Academy to be an effective communicator? Talk about a situation where those skills were put to use in your job/internship. Make sure to talk about the techniques you used to be successful in this situation.
Be sure to comment on a classmate's post. Know that as this is a final, a simple comment like "So awesome that you did that..." will not give you a high score.
There will be two (2) discussion boards per semester. You are to add your response to this page. The response should be 2-3 sentences long describing experiences from your internship site. Make sure to add your name or you will not receive credit. Once you have responded, please comment on two other posts from your classmates. This is a graded assignment.
Describe to the class the internship you are doing. How did you obtain your internship for this school year? If you do not have an internship as of this point, how do you plan to obtain one? Answer these questions below. Remember to comment on two classmate's posts.
