What is Life Skills?
That is by far the most common question I get from students and anyone that finds out I teach Life Skills. So like Changing a Tire? How to cook steak in the oven? Knowing how to make bread? All great life skills.... but have nothing to do with the class. The various health classes in Middle School came to the conclusion that there was no way they could teach everything that there was to teach... so they split off the Drug Education and a handful of other things (thinking/organization skills... stress reduction etc...) into a 7th grade quarter Life Skills class.
Lots and Lots of drugs with some other things sprinkled into the mix.
That mix does included 4 hours of community service.
