Thanks for the links and I enjoy the expertise of the groups.

Re: FRN's

Billy Crow
 

Thanks everyone.  I made up another letter and sent it home with the kids, explaining in detail about the FRN.  Hopefully that'll fix the problems.

Bill,

What Christopher says is exactly how I dealt with it with the Padawans.  I had a couple who said they would not fill it out because they did not want to put the ssn on the FRN form. Once I explained that they are doing it themselves so that no one else has access to the ssn, and that it is just going from one gov site/agency to another, they were okay with it. One parent came in on test day and wanted to do it in front of me, he did, no issues.

Re: FRN's

Christopher Williamson
 

The student's I've dealt with just showed up to the testing site with everything so I never thought about it. However, most if not all were students of families that had hams in them...grandparents...so it wasn't questioned. 

I do see where it could become problematic. Maybe explain to them that the FCC went to FRN to eliminate the SSN? (I think security was one of the reasons?). You are basically taking a government record (SSN) from one government agency to the other and if done correctly, no one but the government will actually see the SSN? Then you can argue the USPS and FCC are independent agencies...whatever that means...it has come up a few times (hey...I teach the G/T kids so we wind up waaaaaaay off track sometimes...)

Dear Crowb and all, 

Well, what parents say is the rule to me.  

So I’d suggest to invite the parent(s) to one (or more!)  of your club meetings and to your Tech license study sessions.  

I would hope they will see what a great benefit their son or daughter will possess with an Amateur Radio license and an internationally unique callsign.  

Involvement is the key.  They don’t seem to understand without some most involvement.  

But that’s just my 2¢ for today.  

Cheers, 

Pat

Re: FRN's

Perhaps they're concerned about sharing all of the required PII of a minor. Granted, it's no more than Boy Scouts require, but it is publicly listed. Perhaps some educational material is in order or a Q&A / FAQ video for parents may help assuage their fears. Maybe recommend a PO Box for their licensee to be, albeit an added expense.

Thank you,

A very good video, but "British" style, maybe there is an American version somewhere?

The RSGB YouTube channel contains also a bunch of YOTA videos which may be useful.

Re: Welcome: Introduce yourself!

Kevin Reeve
 

Hello - Kevin N7RXE from Logan Utah.

My day job is at the University in IT stuff, and I love getting youth excited about amateur radio, space, STEM.  Our club is going to be hosting two 8 week hands-on space science with amateur radio workshops that will lead up to launching a high altitude balloon.  Our first one is targeting girls ages 11 - 17 and will start in March with a launch in May.  Amateur Radio is a big part of our hands on workshop.  Will include on air activities. working satellites. soldering, building LoRa receivers etc. 

I am currently serving as the ARRL Utah Section Youth coordinator and working on baby step-1 to encourage clubs  to plan at least one activity around youth in 2022.

Besides amateur radio, my other hobbies include RGB pixels synced to music outside of the house for halloween and Christmas light displays.  
Look forward to learning from all of you.  
Regards,

Kevin N7RXE - Logan UT


5E lesson planning

John Langdon
 

This model is a little more work, but is ideally suited to project based learning and a more in depth question and answer Socratic dialog.  It also allows you to see the key break points and understand how much to try to get across in a single week or period, and helps you set goals for formative assessment during the lesson.

Lesson Plan Template

Steve Goodgame K5ATA
 

Here is a link to a basic lesson plan template. A few folks have asked for one. I don't want anyone to get hung up on making their ideas/lessons fit a certain template, you all do enough of that at school. For those who have a specific format you use, post them how you make them. I will modify things to standardize them down the road. 

For those who want a place to start, here is a link to a template on Google Drive. Make a copy of it so you will be able to edit it..
https://docs.google.com/document/d/15WqFt8nuCo9FmLtGgiol31VATOzpf_V4qkJ0msSmbmQ/edit?usp=sharing

Thank you for everything you do for kids and amateur radio!

Re: ISTE Standards and Amateur Radio

The repository is in the works, but it will take a little time before it is ready to go. The group list is more of a way for us to share ideas and ask questions. Things will morph over time into something much more robust, but everything has to start somewhere!

Hello Rebecca, 

Thank you for your kind thoughts and valuable contributions.  

We already have a group list, right?   So, what’s next is a repository for Lesson Plans, and I think Steve is setting that up.  But I didn’t hear how.  

Let’s keep the ideas and actions moving.  Thank you for your support!  

Cheers,

Hello Pat, 
  I am an educator and I love using google or canvas classroom. If feasible, can we communicate  and share best practices through this forum. I can create the group and all those interested can input their information on a google  form. Let me know your thoughts.

Hi Steve, 

Thank you very much for your offer of the Lesson Plans.  If you could also post in the repository a generic age-appropriate Lesson Plan outline plus a kind of “fill in the blanks” Lesson Plan form then I believe that you will get more (potential) Lesson Plans from members of this group.  

Case in point: take me.  I am an engineer who visits high school and universities to interface with students on Amateur Radio and other technical topics (e.g., the AMSAT CubeSat Simulator, POTA opportunities, Raspberry Pi projects).  

I have noticed a chasm that seems to exist between teachers and many technical persons.  So, these supplemental tools I suggest will help garner additional quality plans.  

With us able to view Lesson Plans (dated and with version number) in our repository, we can review them, use them as examples for writing plans, and propose edits and updates to improve selected plans.   

Can we make this so?  

Thank you for your support!

One of the goals of this group is to create a resource for teachers to be able to post and find lesson plans/lesson ideas for individual standards. I will be posting a standard each week, in the hopes that people can create/post lesson plans or ideas that help to address the standard.

We all know that teachers have to post lesson plans for administrators to see/approve. This is one hurdle that I think we can help overcome as a group.  Eventually, I will take these and create a sort of repository that is searchable.

I will start out with the ISTE standards, then will move onto other standards such as the NGSS, etc. In order to keep things organized, I ask that you please post your ideas as a message in each topic. For example, if there is a topic labeled ISTE 1.1, post your lesson ideas under that topic. If you have lesson ideas for other standards, please create the topic with a sort of standardized look, such as ISTE 1.1, NGSS MS-PS3-1, etc.

Also, we know that teachers connect learning across multiple disciplines. We also know that principals like it when a lesson hits multiple standards. If a lesson/idea you post meaningfully hits multiple standards, it would be great if you could include those standards in the description. 

Let's all help each other out here, and make it easier to include amateur radio in schools!
