Reading Apprenticeship Workshop - LAMC

Reading Apprenticeship Workshop

 

Wednesday, January 13, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PST)

 

Los Angeles Mission College, CAI Arroyo Room

 

Would you like to improve your students’ success? This interactive workshop offers participants hands-on practice with Reading Apprenticeship (RA) routines, a series of easily adaptable strategies that can be quickly integrated into (and customized for) any classroom instruction with all levels of students.

RA helps instructors support students across the disciplines and levels to become motivated, strategic, and critical readers, thinkers, and writers, to develop positive literacy identities and to engage with challenging academic texts. RA draws on instructors’ expertise as discipline–based readers and on students’ untapped strengths as learners. Participants will join in an interactive workshop centered on embedding RA routines into their courses across disciplines; understand the importance of implementing RA routines as an essential component of deep learning and student success; and connect with interdisciplinary fellow practitioners.

LAMC Veterans Day Ceremony 2015

LAMC Veterans Day Ceremony & Luncheon - by Deborah Manning

 Los Angeles Mission College has a rich tradition of honoring our veteran students, personnel, and community members in the Northeast San Fernando Valley.  Our observance of Veterans Day that was held on Tuesday, November 10, 2015 in the Campus Center held true to our tradition.  Moreover, this year’s ceremony was a momentous occasion that will be remembered in years to come. 

Mayor of the City of Los Angeles, The Honorable Eric Garcetti, a veteran himself (Lieutenant in the United States Navy reserve), was the keynote speaker. In addition to the heartfelt speeches delivered by Mayor Garcetti and Mission College President Monte Perez, there were other inspirational speeches presented by the following guests:

  • Felix W. Ortiz III, United States Army Veteran and CEO of Viridis Learning, flew in from New York City to tell us his remarkable life story beginning with his journey of joining the military at age 17.  Mr. Ortiz served in the 18th Airborne Corps, 27 Delta, and was assigned to Fort Bragg, North Carolina.  He participated in the ROTC at St. John’s University in New York City.

  • Irene Tovar, one of our LAMC Founding Members, remembered WWII Veterans including stories of her own courageous family members who served in the war.
     
  • Margie Long, LAMC Vice Chair and Professor of Communication Studies, recited a seminal poem written by John McCrae during WWI, In Flanders Fields.  Wearing a red fabric poppy pinned to her clothes, Ms. Long spoke passionately about the significance of the poem 100 years later.  She related that the poppy symbol demonstrates a remembrance of veterans.  In Flanders Fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses, row on row….

In an exemplary manner, veteran student Catherine Aiello graciously emceed the ceremony. Ms. Aiello is a United States Army Veteran and an honor student at Mission College. ASO President Jackie Ambridge led the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Music played at the ceremony included “God Bless America” and “The Star Spangled Banner.”  Dr. Perez presented recognition certificates to our veteran students, faculty, and staff as Veteran Resource Center Liaison Richard Castaneda, assisted by Ms. Ambridge, announced the names. Dr. Perez also presented Director of Veteran Affairs Georgia Estrada a plaque for her many years of assisting our veteran students. At the conclusion of the ceremony, Emcee Catherine Aiello invited the audience to observe a moment of silence to honor and remember our veterans. 

After the ceremony, Dr. Perez guided Mayor Garcetti on a tour of the award winning Culinary Arts Institute where faculty and students greeted them. At the luncheon, Mayor Garcetti, who was seated with veteran students and other guests, enjoyed a delicious entrée with other enticing dishes including fresh baked rolls, and a wonderful dessert prepared by the culinary students.  

Our esteemed gratitude to Edward Raskin and his staff, Lily Garcia and Richard Castaneda, for their care and devotion to planning this tremendous ceremony and luncheon that truly honored and recognized our veterans and the importance of Veterans Day.  Professor Raskin is the Veteran Resource Center Director (United States Air Force Retired) and a LAMC Founding Faculty Member. Vice President of Administrative Services Danny Villanueva and Dean of Student Services Ludi Villegas-Vidal also assisted Mr. Raskin with the ceremony. Please click on the following link to view the video slide show.

Noche De Ciencias

NIGHT OF SCIENCE TURNS OUT TO BE A SMASHING SUCCESS!
By Marina Sangkavichai, STEM Counselor

The Main Campus Center and Center for Math and Science building were bustling with science activities on October 24, 2016 as SHPE ( Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers of the Greater San Fernando Valley ) along with the LAMC STEM program collaborated once again to organize their annual Noche De Ciencias event (Family Science Night ).  In addition, student chapters from California State University Northridge and College of the Canyons volunteered their time and efforts to make NDC 2015 a huge success! With an estimated 300 participants, it was the biggest turnout yet!

Noche De Ciencias was created to promote the sciences amongst K-12 students. Science demonstrations and experiments took place on both the Main Campus Center and Center for Math and Science Building. This year, NDC featured activities such as straw towers, straw rockets, and gum drop bridges. SHPE CSUN introduced new activities which included the Hand Grabber and Egg Drop. SHPE COC intrigued students with the Makey and Makey and Mousetrap experiments. High School students were escorted to the Center for Math and Science building where they had the opportunity to engage in life science and physics workshops hosted by Professor Brown and Professor Rains. Wesley F. Uehara from UCLA gave a talk on internship and research opportunities available to students who were thinking of attending UCLA.  It was a huge success! It inspired our students to think about the many opportunities available to them in the field of Engineering and STEM in general.  Free pizza and coffee were generously provided and those who registered early received a Noche De Ciencias T-shirt. Fabulous prizes were raffled off to the community and medals were given to students who participated in the various science competitions. 

Parents had the opportunity to learn more about payment options for college and why obtaining a college education can change the lives of their children for the better. The purpose of these workshops was to prepare parents in our community on ways they can best support their children as they navigate their way through the college experience. The workshops were given in both English and Spanish. Based on parental feedback, it greatly increased their knowledge of the college system and gave them the confidence to help their children succeed.

Noche De Ciencias was exciting and inspiring for all who attended. We look forward to organizing NDC next year!
