My Students

Middle school students are the most complicated group of people to try and understand and connect with. They come in wanting to be at school with their friends and eager to talk to some of their favorite teachers. However, they do not want to do the work (usually). It is our very difficult job as teachers to show our students that there can be joy and excitement in learning.

In our rural school, we try and encourage students to seek knowledge beyond their current boundaries.

We serve a very diverse group of students that all come in expecting to engage in lessons that are well prepared. They know when we as teachers are unprepared and when we do not have the resources we need to fully serve them.

My Project

We as teachers love making colorful and attention grabbing anchor charts to provide helpful information for our students. However, we have no good way to display our beautiful charts.

By providing easels in our classrooms, we will be able to display these charts and allow our students to refer back to them when needed.

These displays are essential in the classroom to provide students reference material around the room. With our Reader's Workshop set up, the mini-lesson really focuses around providing this visual for our students. By having an easel to display these charts, we are also providing a gathering place for students. This gathering place is an area where students can find new information and collaborate with their peers. This project will provide each ELA teacher in our school with an easel to help give students a visual and a reference tool and help us create a gathering place in our classrooms.
