"Finally my students are excited
about reading current events. They now see this information as interesting,
rather than difficult material they have to read. 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!"
