My students are from a rural community of a poor area, and most have had it tough. Many of the students in my class are inclusion special education students, so learning is difficult for them. However, despite all odds, this year we decided to participate in the science fair (the first time it has been done at our school in a long time) and 5 out of 11 categories of students are going to state! They want to learn, have great questions, and are very interested. They want to work hard and understand, but concepts like cells, body systems, and the universe are very abstract and hard for them to understand. Visuals, models, and experiments are key to helping them to really understand and grasp the ideas. Math is the same struggle. How am I going to use this is a question I am constantly having to address. Real world solving helps students to apply what they've learned and helps them to apply problem solving skills. Both the students and I would be very gracious for your help!
