At White River High School in Buckley, biology and life science teacher Jim Boyce co-created a class for special education students called the "Jammin' Salmon Project." Through this synergistic program, students addressed the problem of endangered salmon in the Pacific Northwest by monitoring local waters, designing a Web page, and printing t-shirts and newsletters. Students were also assigned various jobs during the project, including writing, videotaping or taking digital photos. Another of Mr. Boyce's innovations is a challenging anatomy and physiology class he designed to prepare students for the rigors of college. He developed a format for concurrent technology training sessions for the White River staff that has since been adopted by the district.
