My students are spirited and joyful 6th graders, who are interested in coding, enjoy writing and socializing. A third of my class is ESL, a few are SPED and a couple have tailored 504 plans. They enjoy storytelling and recognizing each other and supporting each other on good days and bad ones. Lately, my computer freezes or is slow. The glitches increase and have a negative impact on my students' achievement and they want to learn how to code. Each student requires my personalized attention every day to provide academic assistance and encouragement during virtual instruction and learning.
We will learn about the 1619 Project and learn from our diverse backgrounds. Students will explore the topic of social justice from diverse writers. We learn together. We Grow from our mistakes. Our lessons will focus on learning about social justice and how we are critical thinkers and advocates for ourselves as well for our communities. Students will reflect on the writers' point of view and what each book is communicating. Students will also be asked to write their own children's book similar to " I am Enough." Students will share with our local daycare.
