My students are tired of being bored to tears by teachers talking at them! I teach 4th grade in an elementary school located in a high-need, under-served and underrepresented community located in South Central Los Angeles. Half of my students are English Language Learners and about 85% of all of my students scored far below basic on the California State Test in Language Arts and Math. My school was recently identified as low-performing school and was taken over by the Mayor's "Partnership for Los Angeles Schools" project. The "Partnership" and my school are looking for new, dynamic and alternative ways of teaching in order to achieve high levels student learning.
