Fall Semester Evaluation Pack is a class that we take at the end of our days. We have academically engaged days on Tuesday and Thursdays. In this I will be talking about how much pack can do for a student and how much pack can teach a student about their future. I will also talk about what we need to improve my pack class. The last thing I will be talking about is what I think I could do to improve this class to make the students learn more about their futures.

One thing I like about pack is that Tuesdays and Thursdays we do get a study hall tip class. We get to work on our homework that we have gathered throughout the day. I think that it's a good idea to have that because if we are on a sports team or band. We sometimes have practices after school we don't have to worry about having homework after school.

I think that it does help us out a lot. I know that a lot of the kinds complain about it. But if we didn't complain then we wouldn't be kids. Another good thing about pack is the way that we learn about what we need to do to get a certain job in the future. It helps us learn what class we need to take in high school. What classes we need to take in college. It helps us get set up for the future and helps us understand what is out there waiting for us when we get out from under neath mom and dad. I have learned what I want to do when I get out of high school. I have also figured out what I want to do while I'm still in high school. I am planing on taking summer school to graduate early. If I graduate as a Junior then I will be 18 years old. I will be old enough to join the 20\20 program through the Palo Verde Nuclear Plant. They will tell me the classes I need to take and will pay for me to take them. I can't go to an out of state college because 20\20 stands for 20 hours of work and 20 hours of school. So I will be working at the same time I will be going to school to get the education I need to get that job. The more I think about it the more I want to do it. The pack class has thought me that you need to know what you want to do now before its to late. The other good thing about pack is that when you need information on something you can always go to your pack teacher and ask. No matter what it is he or she will help you. To fined info on things, to solve a problem, and even to help you on your homework.

There are a few things that I wish we could do more of in pack. Like talk about our future out looks more. Have the teachers help you with what you want to do. Ask you questions on why you want to do one thing. Also help you learn about the job you are interested in taking. Another thing that I wish my pack class in general would do, is not so much time to do our home work and more time having pack conversations about what our futures may hold. Pack is a great class but I know this is the first year doing it and I think that as we go along it will get better. I would love to be able to go through high school being able to say that pack class has helped me figure out what I want to do in the future. I believe that it has but not as much as it could be. When I ask the teacher a question I don't do it to come off as annoying. I do it so that I can better understand the things that we are supposed to learn in this class.

In my pack class like I said we have way to much homework time and I feel like if we had more time to talk about what we want to do in the future more kids would realize or understand what they want to do. I believe that pack is a good idea for a high school. It will teach kids what they can and can't do. I also think that while it is a good class it could be better. Because of the fact that we do have conversations about the future I think that if we have more it will help more students understand what is out there. The pack class is an neat and interesting class we just need to add more to it. I think that if we have a discussion on what the kids would like to do in the future. Then the teacher can ask the office to get more information on this place, thing, or career. I also believe that the more the student learns about the job he or she was thinking or knew that they wanted they would realize that, that is what they wanted to do or not. It would help them better understand the kind of grades or credits they need to get that job. Or if they learn more about it they would realize that's really not what they wanted to do so they can still change while they are young. The more they realize it now as a student they will appreciate it more in the future. When they get older and think back I'm glad we had that pack class.

Well I think that I have talked enough about the good and bad things about pack classes I believe that as we go on school will get harder and harder. The pack class helps us prepare for some steps. The pack class will make student realize that high school is not a free ride it's a reality check. But if they don't realize that then they are not going to be the ones to graduate with a career in mined. They are the once that are going to graduate and work at a low paying job or something that does not take a lot of thought. That is not bad but still people can do so much better if they just put there mined to it. I thank the school for making pack a required class.
