My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds that shape their learning experiences and contribute to that of their peers. Like many students, mine are excited about the hands-on and innovative approaches to their learning in order to not only comprehend the concepts they need to know​ but to have fun while doing it.

My students also strive to find new ways of incorporating alternative methods to our lessons that make them relatable to what interests them and to ensure that those lessons have a lasting impact beyond the current school year.

My Project

This project will be a cross-curricular project-based learning approach for my Modern American Combat Studies students, combining history and art. The students will learn about the major air battles of World War II, in a hands-on approach that will highlight art design concepts of World War II airplanes.

The students will create a walk-through exhibit, in our hallway.

The students will design and paint paper mache planes, similar to those used in World War II. They will then digitally design posters, that will be printed and displayed alongside their plane models.

Once completed, the students will transform one of our building's hallways. They will cover the unused lockers with military camo netting, and then using the wood building materials to create frames for their printed posters. The posters will be hung from the locker hooks with the netting providing a background. Above their model planes will be hung from the ceiling, depicting five different battles of World War II, from the Battle of Britain to the Battle of Midway and the D-Day invasion.

This project will not only allow my students to learn the history of these battles​ but also apply their artistic skills in the various designs of aircraft.
