  • Hooked on Education: Fairport Harding students design, test fishing lures (photos)

    By Grant Segall, The Plain Dealer
    on December 01, 2016 at 11:34 AM, updated December 01, 2016 at 12:24 PM

    FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio -- Domenic Paolo, Fairport Harbor's superintendent of schools, was tutoring an expelled student last year. Knowing Paolo loves to fish, the student made him a fishing lure on the office's 3-D printer.

    Paolo loved the lure. "It was out-fishing my other lures," he said. "With 22 cents of plastic, he made a lure better than ones I'd paid $10, $12 for."

    The result is a new student program called Hooked on Education. Since September, some 36 students at Fairport Harding High School who'd struggled in traditional classroom are spending most of their day researching, designing, printing and painting lures.

  • In Fairport, Rich Lanes and the high school’s bowling program a perfect match

    By Mark Podolski, The News-Herald

    It doesn’t take long to drive through Fairport Harbor.

    “Oh, about a 1-mile square radius,” said Jerry Rich, co-owner of Rich Lanes.

    If you blink, you might miss a treasure and mainstay of the tiny village near to the shores of Lake Erie.

    Rich Lanes has been in existence for more than 60 years. Brothers Jerry and Brian Rich co-own the bowling alley.

    Their grandfather Tony built it in 1955, then sold it to their father Jerry Sr., who ran the Lanes for 32 years. Brian and Jerry have owned it going on 12 years.

    Community pride and tradition has built Rich Lanes into an institution in Fairport Harbor.

    Over the last eight years, another tradition has been built — Fairport High School’s bowling program.

    The school usually short on numbers for most sports has made its mark in bowling.

    For the first time in program history, Fairport has qualified a boys and girls team to the state tournament in the same year.

  • Straight A Grant Awarded to Fairport Harbor School District

    The Fairport Harbor Exempted Village School district was awarded a "Straight A" grant from the Ohio Department of Education. In collaboration with Auburn Career Center, the Lake County ESC, and Battelle, the district developed a strategy for transdisciplinary, project-based learning that will allow students to master state standards while engaging in a project that will not only deepen learning, but also deepen their connection to their community.

    Piloted last spring, the innovative approach to education has students learning and applying Ohio learning standards from all disciplines while engaged in a project which researches, designs, manufactures, markets and sells fishing lures using computer software, code writing, and three-dimensional printers. Located on the shores of Lake Erie, Fairport has a long tradition of recreational fishing. The fishing lure project takes advantage of the district's geography, pays homage to its traditions, and creates a new avenue to develop the entrepreneurial talents of its students.

    The department received 141 grant applications representing 404 schools.

  • Launching an Effort in Collaboration

    Eighth graders in Susan Tenon’s English class at Fairport Harding High School in Fairport Harbor spent much of second semester building rockets in the high school physics lab.

    After reading and discussing Homer Hickam’s memoir, October Sky (the story of a West Virginia coal miner’s son who was inspired by the launch of Sputnik to take up rocketry), the students worked together with older physics students to build homemade rockets they launched before their classmates at semester’s end.

    “The skills you use for creative writing are the same skills you use for technical or scientific writing; you have to observe, interview, research, document, and reflect,” explains Ms. Tenon, who partnered with physics teacher Russ Messer to show how literacy and science overlap.

    With a Grant-to-Educators from the Jennings Foundation, the teachers collaborated to develop students’ skills in critical reading and writing, problem solving, self-directed learning, and thinking like scientists. They challenged students to build and test bottle rockets, documenting in scientific notebooks every hypothesis, problem, material, and trial launch result each step of the way.
