Students with special needs will have the opportunity to engage in multiple content areas such as literacy, writing, health, and math by moving through our Problem Based Learning semester activity. We will be reading and discussing the literature in depth which will include story elements, theme, and authors point of view to name a few. Students will also research and collect data, furthering their depth of knowledge with math. They will read Devoted and Shelter Dogs in order to gain an understanding of the problem of overcrowding of dogs in local animal shelters, the role shelters currently play as well as how dogs benefit humans. Through this problem based learning and reading the two texts, students will have the opportunity to interact with dogs at the local animal shelter, which also adheres to their specific needs particular to the areas of social-emotional learning. My students will have the opportunity to present their project to a panel of staff that includes staff from the local animal shelter. They will discuss their learning, and provide both their explanation and possible solutions on how to solve overcrowding in animal shelters. Any solutions that are accepted, will have the chance to be implemented.
