My Students

Our students are special education students who are passionate in learning. We don't easily give up until we come up with an answer or solution. Special education students have a more difficult time learning so when teaching special needs students, we must search for the best way to instruct them to ensure that they have the best education available. Our class is warm and welcoming environment. Our students feel safe and secure. They help and support each other. Our classroom is about learning, building skills and relationships.

My Project

All students should experience the world. Special education classrooms can often benefit from taking students with special needs on field trips. We want our students to see and interact outside their comfort zone. The students will be able to do this by analyzing the Coca-Cola Corporation in terms of marketing and advertising of its beverage products. Our lesson will reflect how it, and subsequently other Corporations, became symbols of American consumer and cultural. We want to provide our students with a fun learning experience through social interaction and living skills with the public. To achieve this we will need help in providing transportation to and from the World of Coca Cola. Our students will also learn to ask relevant questions, display appropriate turn-taking behavior, and listen to another person‘s comments or opinions. Utilizing a visual field trip itinerary can reduce anxiety or discomfort in students with special needs who are used to following a routine schedule. Our students also do not get to travel outside their neighborhoods so your help will be greatly appreciated!
