Beyond the Classroom

 
The Beyond the Classroom program is a three-year sequence of experiences designed to take students into the field and beyond the traditional classroom walls and buildings, to develop life and leadership skills, and to serve the greater community. It is intended to promote professional, entrepreneurial, ethical, civic, and intellectual engagement in the local community for all our high school students.
 
9th grade: Inspiring a Passion for Learning
This program dovetails directly with the curriculum of 9th grade classes, the centerpiece of which is the 9th grade interdisciplinary trip in September to Camp Roger in the Uinta Mountains.  The trip integrates science, art, geography, and history.
 
10th grade: Inspiring a Passion for Life
Some of the best learning occurs outside the traditional classroom setting.  Each September, sophomores are presented with a complex task and asked to solve it through collaborative, hands-on work.  In 2012, for example, sophomores designed built, and raced gravity cars.
 
11th grade:  Nurturing a Spirit of Service and Activism
Students align themselves with a service organization in order to “fill a gap” in that organization.  The work in this project may be strictly local or connected to a global issue and acted upon locally.


*25 hours of service are required for graduation.

I am interested in the medical field as a profession, and so I looked for a BTC internship that would help me learn more about this field. I have a love for teaching and sharing information with others, and, as a result, part of my internship involved teaching young adults about health issues that pertain to their daily lives. I have also been able to spend time in local clinics in Salt Lake City and West Valley to shadow nurses and learn more about the daily responsibilities and schedules of physicians.

Thus far, I am interested in becoming an OB/GYN, and so this interest dictated the types of places I visited. I wanted to learn as much about this field as I could while in high school because I know medical school is a long road. I also am interested in being a professor of medicine, and so I love to find opportunities to teach about health issues.
