Note Taking Skills for 21st Century Students

This is how I remember September 11th. 

I went on a school field trip with my teachers and students to the ruins of Old Leon, Nicaragua. After the field trip I was exhausted and hungry. I wanted to get home and make tuna casserole. However, my neighbors were adamant that I watch the news on their television. I acquiesced and found them watching a movie. I kept watching and watching, waiting for the credits to roll across the screen. They kept saying that this was real and happening in real life, that this was no movie, that this was a great tragedy in my country and for the world.

After we understood what was going on, my teachers and friends came to my house to check on me and my family in the States. I had not felt so much love and concern before that moment.

 For me, this picture evokes those memories of concern, love, and friendship. I like to remember September 11th as this picture.

The Emerge Beads-to-Business program teaches girls business and math skills using jewelry as a therapeutic and practical teaching tool. Girls work through a self-paced workbook that tackles concepts such as budgeting, inventory management, product development, marketing, branding, and financing. Jewelry created in the program is sold in Sri Lanka and abroad through avenues that raise awareness about the cause and allow the purchaser to be a part of a young woman’s rehabilitation. 50% of Emerge Global’s jewelry selling price goes directly into the designer’s savings account, which she may access at the age of 18. Out of the remaining 50%, $0.25 per product goes to a “Community Fund” that the girls direct and the rest covers the cost of goods sold, so that Emerge can support the healing of more survivors. Emerge utilizes a self-paced business workbook to accommodate girls from a variety of educational backgrounds. Each week, girls participate in an “Emerge Store” and “Emerge Bank” simulation, where they learn the basics of banking, budgeting, and strategic planning.
