SAEJ (Social And Environmental Justice) Course Description

SAEJ is a unique AHS graduation-track program for 9th and 10th grade students that offers an alternative approach to high school education. SAEJ students meet every other day (on white days) for an integrated curriculum that includes credits in English, social studies, and science aimed at developing studentsí skills in reading and writing. This program has changed over the last two years to provide a safe, academically-challenging yet alternative style of education. SAEJ is designed for graduation-track students who want a different kind of learning experience. SAEJ classes are tied to the Oregon Common Core standards; the students read great literature (novels by Twain and Steinbeck, poetry by Poe, Frost, and Cummings, short stories, essays, biographies), analyze classic films, and create art about their discoveries. Journal writing is an important part of the SAEJ process, and some journal entries will be developed into formal essays. English, history, global studies and science skills are embedded within the integrated lessons to provide a more holistic approach for the student. Attendance and participation in activities and discussions are an essential part of the SAEJ experience. SAEJ is designed on the Greek Socratic model of education with the emphasis on self-inquiry and self-discovery. Philosophy, culture, and diversity in both the natural and human worlds are part of the curriculum.
 
SAEJ teachers Lloyd Lasley and Reed Sorensen have over twenty years of combined experience teaching alternative classes.  This experience really helps them connect with students and make the class meaningful. Most schoolwork is accomplished in class; homework is rare. The pace is lively and fun; stories are often read aloud by the teachers, and students are encouraged to explore personal interests through their work. Current event discussions and writing projects, outdoor field trips, and community service projects are also part of the SAEJ experience.
 
Students who want to graduate from high school but want a different kind of learning experience should consider the SAEJ program. Contact Lloyd Lasley or Reed Sorensen at AHS for more information.
