Sayles, Joe


Welcome to Southwest High School. I have been supporting students in a variety of social studies and special education settings for over 20 years. I hold all students to high expectations for academic performance and behaviors while differentiating for individual needs.
Subject:  Social Studies (Govt./Econ.) for students in the SWAG program- School within a School

The School Within a School Program exists at six Minneapolis high school sites. Students are supported during the school day prior to failing course work. Curriculum will be a blend of direct instruction and project-based learning. Flexible programming is used to accommodate diverse life situations, including smaller class sizes,  individual support,  while helping students fulfill requirements for graduation.
