My Students

I teach gifted students in 7th and 8th grade. They are in a project based curriculum where they learn the standards from their core classes and have the ability to take them further.

We are trying to develop their critical thinking skills so that they can become better problem solvers.

All too often students believe that they know it all and they don't need any further information.

My classroom allows them to make mistakes in a safe environment where they can learn from them to better themselves.

My Project

We are requesting brain games and project boards so that they can work on their critical thinking skills and become better problem solvers. The games listed in this project will enhance my students' ability to reason through a problem and think critically in order to solve it.

I am trying to get students to see the "whole picture" when looking at a situation.

Many times, students have a one-sided view of their world instead of a global view. They need a safe place to practice problem solving where they can make mistakes and learn from them.

Students will spend time each day working on mind games and puzzles to help them learn about critical thinking. I teach gifted students who often times need more practice in exercising common sense.

I hope that this project can help them to grow in more ways that the typical school environment can offer.
