They hear it, see it and they understand it. They want to delve deeper into the event," says Joan Streitenberger, 7th grade social studies teacher. "With One on One presenting the material in an interesting and understandable manner and WYNN meeting the needs of my students' individual learning styles, I do not have to 'rewrite history.' My time is spent in discussion with the students on the topics. How wonderful it is to hear their educated opinions!"
