Mrs. Tyrrell from Concord CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students an architecture-inspired STEAM unit that includes literature, art, and hands-on building.
As a teacher in a low-income/high-poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, they come to school ready to learn and eager for new experiences.
I strive to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
Our arts magnet school students are interested in learning about careers in STEAM-inspired fields. They are interested in learning more about the field of architecture and and learning about well-known architects. They want to know about careers that are inspired by the arts.
Our students will use literature, art, and hands-on building Lego kits to deepen their understanding of architecture as an art form and to learn about careers in the field of engineering and architecture.
They will learn about architectural drawing, well-known architects, and many famous man-made landmarks around the world. Maybe we will inspire the next Frank Lloyd Wright.
