7th Graders without Science Textbooks need Paper!

My students need 3 cases of recycled copy paper so that we can study science through engaging lessons, without Mr. M buying any more paper out-of-pocket!

My Students

At the brand new McLain 7th Grade Academy, we are focusing on preparing 7th graders for high school and college. However, without science text books, materials to create engaging lessons must be printed constantly and paid for out of the teacher's pocket.

My students are energetic, full of personality, and ready to be engaged with fun, challenging science!

They are from North Tulsa, a predominantly low-income, African American community. We have the special opportunity to be in a 7th Grade Academy setting, where students of ages 12 and 13 get a lot of special attention as we transition them from elementary school to high school. Unfortunately, a lot of students are performing below grade level. But, with a focus on literacy and engaging lessons, we hope to see students ready to leave our building in the spring, prepared to succeed in high school and beyond.

My Project

Since we do not have access to Science textbooks at our school, I have been working hard to create challenging, engaging science lessons that are much more exciting and build deeper, more lasting knowledge than simply reading from your traditional science text. This, however, requires lots of paper. The recycled copy paper in this project will be used to create materials for at least a year's worth of science lessons!

No longer will Mr. Morgan avoid supplying students with materials because he can't afford constantly buying paper.

Students will be able to create and keep their own science text using the guided notes and handouts I will be able to provide with this paper. By creating their own science text like this, students will build lasting knowledge about the world around them, build the critical thinking skill necessary to solve this world's problems, and be ready for high school and college!
