Reasons for selecting "very satisfied" as my rating for the Situation Room Experience" 1. The leader (Stephanie) was both competent and helpful, as well as patient. 2. The accommodations were first-class 3. The curriculum and "experience" design was well done 4. The leader's (Stephanie's) post-experience review was helpful in that it gave additional context and information to the students. 5. The Bush Presidential Center's security staff was both helpful and courteous.
The Situation Room Experience was absolutely amazing for my students. I watched student get an opportunity to learn real life skills while applying government knowledge in a way they may never have experienced before. The experience overall made our students verbalize their appreciation for the leaders of our nation and helped them appreciate history. Thank you so very much for the opportunity, we look forward to returning in the future!
The whole experience was very well set up and very organized. The facilitators interatcted very well with the students and helped them preform their best. All students were fully engaged the whole time and were having so much fun. As a teacher of the group, I could just sit back and see the learnign and experience unfold infront of me. I can't wait until next year when I can bring in anoher group.
It was a fabulous experience for our students. Thank you so much we truly enjoyed ourselves.
The students were challenged and engaged the throughout the entire experience. The staff was professional and encouraged the students think through the process. I will definitely bring another group.
The reservation process was very hard because I need to schedule two groups on the same day. There should be a morning session and an afternoon session. Was asked on reservation page about visiting the museum and I said yes, but it seems as if I was also suppose to do a field trip form too? Confusing The experience was great for the students. Many complained about tech issues with messages coming in 10 after someone else got it. Also our second group had more issues that the early group. They also had communication issues between the Sit room and the Hospital. I like the teacher material on line to get ready and to close up. Museum Experience was different for each group. Morning group felt too herded by the docents and that they missed a lot of things. Teachers would be able to do this. In the afternoon my group had more freedom and they really liked exploring at their own pace. As a school we will do this again next year and I feel better prepared now too.
WOW! What an experience! The students became fully engaged, completely absorbed by the reality of the developing scenario. The history, the process, the real life crisis management, each provide key components to this deep experiential learning experience. Sharon Brannon is an excellent hostess and instructor. Thank you for allowing our students to be a part of this program. I have been instructed to set up a time for next year!
excellent program that created a real-time like experience that the students found exciting, informative, challenging, and analytical.
Excellent experience! The students really felt the situation was authentic and realistic. Said they learned a great deal.
