During the class, students participate in activities such as outdoor cooking, setting up and breaking down a campsite, ziplining, low ropes course activities, team-building games, and a guided nature walk. Students practice environmental awareness and learn about outdoor clothing and equipment needs (e.g., tents, sleeping bags, lanterns, camping cookware and food). The weekend provides opportunities for students to practice self-determination and social skills through problem-solving, goal setting and attainment, active listening, and assertive communication. https://library.tsbvi.edu/Play/13509 Fri, 10 Feb 2017 11:08:31 GMT https://library.tsbvi.edu/Play/13509 Iron Chef In this class, based on the premise of the Iron Chef television show, students will prepare and cook a variety of basic foods within a fun context, as they prepare food over the course of the weekend. They will learn a variety of culinary techniques, including using a stove and oven, how to handle raw meat, cutting/chopping/dicing, pouring, measuring, food safety, using a timer, storing items, working in a team, reading recipes, setting a table, and shopping/grocery store navigation. In the dorm after school, students will also practice other skills of independent living (e.g., organizing one's personal area), as well as social skills, recreation, leisure, and self-determination. Simply being together and sharing similar challenges can be an invaluable, life-changing experience for students. https://library.tsbvi.edu/Play/13508 Fri, 10 Feb 2017 10:58:49 GMT https://library.tsbvi.edu/Play/13508 Prom Prom weekend is that wonderful time of year when TSBVI high school students, along with friends from around the state, put on their finest to dance the night away.
