‘Tweens’ Debate Tourney on Deck

Elementary and middle school students have brains wired for debate, be it in arguing the finer points of an extra few minutes of TV at bedtime, or pleading a case for a new puppy. Now, they have an academic arena to show off those skills. On Thursday, March 21, 2013, Canyons is hosting fourth- through ninth-graders at a districtwide Debate Tournament, scheduled from 3 — 8:30 p.m. at Alta High School. About 90 student participants will debate whether the State of Utah should substantially increase its support of nuclear energy generation within its borders. Alta and Hillcrest students will serve as judges.

The optional debate program is aimed at providing younger students with a way to enhance their critical thinking and reasoning abilities in an environment where academic development and communication skills are promoted and rewarded. It also dovetails well with new core learning standards. The state tournament, sponsored by the National Energy Foundation, is in April.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
