Dan Birrenkott Visits Sun Prairie Senior High School Students

Students in Rebecca Griffin’s Critical Reading class at Sun Prairie Senior High School recently visited with Dan Birrenkott in their classroom.  Rebecca is “working with her students to develop the skills and strategies needed to comprehend the type of texts and reading tasks they will encounter in college and in their career.”  By inviting guest speakers into the classroom, students learn real-world examples of strategies they can use when “the reading gets tough!”

Dan presented the students samples of items read on a daily basis in the surveying profession; legal descriptions, title reports, codes, state statutes, and survey maps.  He spoke of the importance of wording things carefully, and they asked him questions about the education/training needed to become a surveyor.  The next day, they sent Dan this note:

Thank you note from Rebecca Griffin’s students
