Harrison High School Business Education students tie real life experiences into the classroom, says Debbie Martin, HHS business teacher. Database management and Microsoft Access is part of the standards of instruction for the class, Computer Business Applications (CBA). Students created tables, forms and queries and collected data on teams, players, records and tournament appearances for the recent March Madness Basketball Tournament.
Martin says, "Anytime you can make learning relevant and memorable, students are more apt to retain and hopefully apply their knowledge. As popular as the tournament is, I often have students that fill in their FIRST tournament bracket in my classroom. Those are fun moments to be a part of."
