Transcript: Good Shepherd Service-Learning Project Marlea Maddox Mod 6F This service project will have a great impact on my future because through this experience, I have learned teaching skills,which are a very important set of skills to have so that I may become a leader to others. Through this project, I learned good communication skills, which are another very important asset to have. I also learned to value my Catholic faith and education. If The Good Shepherd school had not been established, these children might not have been able to freely exhibit their faith like many other children in Catholic schools and they may not grow up to be rooted in their faith. Through this experience, my life has been forever changed because I will carry the skills I have developed through this experience with me throughout the rest of my life. Good Shepherd Background Good Shepherd Background Socializing with students after the lesson Scripture Lesson at Ursuline In my time with the Good Shepherd students, I experienced a great change in my view on the value of Catholic education. I noticed that I was starting to take my Catholic education for granted, but now that I have experienced a short amount of time in the children's lives, I realize that Catholic education is a vital factor in today's society. Through spending time with these children, I realized how much of a privilege Catholic education is and how much these children value it. I noticed that the Good Shepherd students are always eager to learn, and for me, that was a very rewarding experience. This was a rewarding experience because most children who go to school in a Catholic setting, much like me, do not value their Catholic education as much as the Good Shepherd students do; their will to learn proves that there are still children out there who value Catholic education. Through my time with the Good Shepherd students, I learned how to teach young children successfully. I learned that although it may be difficult at times, there is always a way that I can teach people, especially children, new things. This experience also strengthened both my own and the Good Shepherd student's faith. By teaching the children the Bible stories of Moses and Noah's Ark, I helped them to gain an understanding of vital Bible stories all while helping myself to better understand these stories by teaching them to others. In the future, I hope that the Good Shepherd students will share these stories with others and help them to grow in their faith. Taking Action Ursuline students teaching students at Good Shepherd. Ursuline Students making Moses Prayer cards with Good Shepherd Students At Good Shepherd, Ms. Kass' Theology class mainly worked with children who were in kindergarten or first and second grade. Good Shepherd is a very small, close-knit school, much like Ursuline. Good Shepherd is also very devoted with providing children the education they deserve. The Good Shepherd School provides an education to help at-risk children in order to spur academic and personal growth. Good Shepherd is addressing a problem that concerns making a catholic education available to everyone. The Good Shepherd School is helping to fix this problem by providing a Catholic-based school environment for those who cannot afford it. The Good Shepherd school is also helping students grow in their faith by instilling the Catholic faith throughout school starting at a young age When the Ursuline students visited Good Shepherd, we had a lesson prepared to tech the students about Moses. In class, we created a special prayer that reflected traits of Moses and a drawing to put on the front of each prayer card. First we taught the children about Moses, using quotes from Scripture, such as: "The Angel of the Lord appeared to him as fire flaming out of a bush." After explaining Moses' story, we created individual prayer cards with the Good Shepherd students Our class came together as a whole to contribute to this lesson, and in the end, it was a success! When the Good Shepherd students came to Ursuline, Ms. Kass' mod 6F class taught the children about the story of Noah's Ark in the Bible We taught the students using quotes from scripture, such as "The animals came onto the Ark, just as God has commanded him" (Genesis 7:9). After teaching the students the story, the class came together as a whole and each individual group performed a play they wrote to re-enact the story. We voted on this activity as a class, to make sure that both the Good Shepherd and Ursuline students would lear something new about Noah's Ark.

Transcript: GOOD PRESENTATION HOW TO MAKE A GOOD PRESENTATION 1-3 1-3 Keep it simple Tip 1 You want your presentation’s ideas to be accessible and easy to follow. As you prepare, ask yourself: what are the key points you want people to take away? Nothing is worse than being stuck watching a presentation that goes on and on that you hardly understand. Include visuals Tip 2 Instead of more words, supplement your ideas with vivid imagery. Again, the key is not overusing photos to the point that it makes your presentations look unprofessional. Photos should only be used if they promote or emphasize the main idea of your slide. Leverage body language, facial expressions and eye contact. Tip 3 Maintaining eye contact creates a connection between you and the audience and helps the space feel more intimate. It’ll help them pay attention to you and what you’re saying. 4-6 Use large fonts Tip 4 Aside from the obvious reason that larger fonts are more readable, size dictates the impact of your message and a larger one makes it easier for your audience to clearly grasp what you’re saying or want to highlight. Aside from font size, pay attention to the spacing between paragraphs, rows, and columns; you don’t want your text to appear jumbled. Choose colours and contrast Use bold colors and high contrast. A color may look completely different on your monitor than it will when projected on a large screen. Tip 5 Focus on one idea per slide. Tip 6 You don’t want to crowd too much information into one slide. If your slide design is cluttered and ugly, your audience is immediately going to zone out of your presentation and look elsewhere. Instead, use one slide for each thought or idea. 7-10
