Spending time outside of the classroom is a great way for students to practice soft skills. The time away allows students to interact with people in the community, by means of purposeful field trips. Through a Community Based Education Grant, Integrated Service teacher Jake Neufeld has mapped out a year full of trips to places like the grocery store, Target, Michaels and even bowling.
