Community volunteers are needed to help provide feedback students in the Manteca Unified be.tech program.
Principal Diane Medeiros noted each be.tech student is enrolled in an Academy Professional Development class. During the 9-week quarter, students are learning both technical skills and soft skills that will prepare them for the workforce. They study character traits, set personal goals, volunteer in the community and complete projects that lend themselves to problem solving and the use of critical skills. Presentation skills are an essential component of their professional development.
Mederios said they are in need of community panel members who can give our students honest feedback following their Exposition presentation. She said staff believes that the experience of presenting to the community, their parents and peers will enhance their learning experience. The task of panel members is to assess student presentations, give students feedback and who can ask the students thought-provoking questions.
The Expositions are scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 8 to 11:15 a.m. and 12:10 to 2:35 p.m. as well as on Thursday, Oct. 6, from 8 to 12:15 p.m. Each expo is 35 or 45 minutes long. Mederios is hoping community members will consider serving as a panel member for one, two or more expos. Students will be presenting in 11 different rooms simultaneously. They are in need of members from industry, the business community, and from the general community for each panel so many volunteers are needed.
