The Life Skills class went out into the community to practice authentic learningLife Skills. In our area it is important for students to learn their community, be able to navigate within the community and to be able to identify and take advantage of resources that will help them integrate into the community. As educators we believe in preparing our students for success so theLife Skills class learned how to read the public transportation bus schedule and how to ride pubic transportation in order to get from one designated MTA point to another MTA designated point. The students chose a place to go to for lunch then took the public transportation from the closest designated MTA point to the point nearest their destination and completed a return trip.
This trip was part of a Community Based Instruction trip organized by Ms. Jesse C. which helps our students to get out into the community while preparing them to be successful and independent.
