Love the choices for expression you provided to your manufacturing bridge students. Thanks for providing this choice as well as the learning menu options!
Since it is a bridge class, I wonder about talking to them about the workplace value of different types of expression? Of course, the written is important, and I like the choice you allowed them to make. Since you indicated they were interested in other means of expression but chose what was familiar to them, it might be fun to nudge them into trying some other options so they can experience the value of orally expressing themselves. I can see many reasons in the workplace that it would be helpful for our students to be able to express themselves to their supervisor about how a project went, potential problems they see that might arise, etc.
Thanks for providing options!
