On Friday, Sept. 25, education students from Dr. Katie Krammer’s EDC 300: Introduction to Exceptionalities class at Lake Erie College traveled to Broadmoor School in Mentor to take on the Broadmoor Bobcats in a friendly basketball game.
In the end, the Bobcats were victorious over LEC with a 54-38 win. The LEC jersey now hangs among the jerseys of other local high schools and colleges whose students have experienced defeat against the Bobcats.
During their visit, the future teachers from LEC not only had the opportunity to play basketball with Broadmoor students who have developmental disabilities, but were also given a tour of the school and learned more about various services for students with special needs.
"When I asked the students what they thought of the field trip, they immediately asked if they could go back,” said Dr. Krammer, associate professor and coordinator of special education licensure at LEC. "This field trip is consistently one of my students’ favorite parts of EDC 300. This is an annual tradition that will hopefully continue for many years to come.”
Broadmoor School is a part of the Lake County Board of Developmental Disabilities, an organization working to advance public awareness of and assistance for individuals with developmental disabilities.
