Metcalf BlazeTime project involves research, polling, presentations and persuasion

Shannon McParland, principal at Metcalf Middle School, recently received an invitation she definitely didn’t want to turn down.  

Eighth-grade students in teacher Steve Orth’s Blaze Time class invited McParland to their presentations of proposed changes they’d like to see at their school. Blaze Time, which takes place at all middle schools in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191, is one class period each day focused on enrichment, acceleration or intervention programming for students.
