Field studies program is extension of classrooms
Posted October 13, 2012
Students at The Webb School will be involved in Field Studies on Oct. 18-19, visiting colleges, attending college preview and preparatory seminars, assisting community service organizations and participating in caving, hiking and other camping activities.
“The field studies program provides an opportunity for our students to bond and to develop relationships with classmates and teachers,” said Angela Rasnick, Webb director of studies. She added that the program is an extension of ideas and practices from the classrooms. “It gives our students a broader view of life and activities outside of the Webb campus.”
Sixth and seventh graders will spend time camping at New Frontiers Camp near Smithville, eighth graders will be at Camp Wesley Woods in Townsend, and the freshman class trip will take students to Camp Lookout in Rising Fawn, Ga. Sophomores’ community service will take place at Shelbyville Adult Learning Center, First Baptist Church Second Harvest Food Pantry, Shelbyville Argie Cooper Library, Cascade Elementary School and Arrowhead Ranch in Normandy. Juniors will attend on-campus seminars about the college application process led by Jamison Fee, Webb’s college counselor, and college representatives. They will also attend a College Fair and visit colleges and universities in Alabama and Tennessee. Finally, seniors will be involved in on-campus seminars about issues facing first-year college students including nutrition, becoming a part of Greek life, safe dating, and drugs and alcohol. They will also work on senior research papers.
