My Students

My students are of middle to low income. Many of my students will be the first to graduate high school and go on to college. The students work to bring up their academics to the par that is needed to apply to college. My AVID class often times becomes a family. This is a great benefit for the students because many of them do not have a strong family life and need this family environment at school to be successful. My students are involved in the AVID program that bridges the gap for those students that would normally not make it into college on their own.

My Project

The items I have chosen will be used to emphasize community within my AVID program at my school. I will use the prize wheel to reward students that attend lunchtime tutoring. They can spin the wheel for various prizes like lanyards, t-shirts, homework passes, etc. The answer buzzers will be used when we play games in the class, they will get to buzz in. The kids love to play trivia games and compete against each other. A large part of Junior year is taking the SAT and ACT. I will use the countdown clock to display how many days they have until they have to take these high stakes test to get them in the mindset. The paper cutter will be used by me to help them cut and manage handouts for other classes to ensure that they are organized and clean. It will also be used to cut items like stickers, invitations, etc., for the AVID group.
