My Students

My students are fourth-graders in an Expeditionary Learning Education school. They participate in academically rigorous, project-based learning expeditions and organize service-learning projects. This allows them to think and work as professionals, contributing high-quality work to authentic audiences beyond the classroom.

Our approach to curriculum makes the standards come alive for our students by connecting learning to real-world issues and needs.

I teach on a semi-departmentalized team where I teach reading, writing, grammar, and social studies to two groups of students each day. Not only will this project affect one classroom of twenty-five bright fourth graders, but it will help all 51 students! One hundred eager readers and writers will benefit from your donation, and it will allow them to share their academic stories.

My Project

My students must complete two service-learning projects a year and are required to keep a portfolio to document their learning. These projects require the students to create high-quality work, which is achieved with multiple drafts, feedback, and revisions.

My students are requesting chart paper markers, regular markers, scissors, and binders to help them create and display their high-quality work!

My students are responsible for their own learning as well as teaching their classmates. They use markers often to create charts that show their learning and are used to teach their classmates what they have learned. We go through markers very quickly, and they are always begging for more!
