CLAYTON - Twenty-four juniors in the Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program are taking advantage of Ohio’s new credit flex concept this fall.
Col. Dale Berger and social studies teachers Dave Gilmore, Peggy Livingston and Robin Speer cross-walked the Social Studies 3/Global Issues course of study with the Air Force Junior ROTC curriculum, and they worked out an assessment plan by which students may demonstrate mastery of the common content.
Students who earn an 80 percent or better in the Social Studies 3 portion of Col. Berger’s curriculum will earn Social Studies 3 credit in addition to their normal Air Force Junior ROTC credit. Students might use that credit towards an honors diploma, as credit redemption, or as an elective.
The 24 juniors represent the following districts: Arcanum-Butler, Bethel, Eaton, Huber Heights, Miami East, Miamisburg, Milton-Union, National Trail, Preble-Shawnee, Tipp City, Tri-County North, Twin Valley South, Vandalia-Butler, Versailles and West Carrollton.
