About My Students

My students are sophomore-junior level teens taking Writing class at Bay Port High School in the Howard-Suamico school district, just outside of Green Bay, WI. My Writing class is a team-taught course that includes general education, special education, and English Language Learner (ELL) students. I am so proud of how they all came together this semester despite their different education and personal backgrounds. The students who proposed these projects did so as our last assignment of the semester. The Writing Team at my school developed this assignment as a way to engage students in real-life writing and teach them the value of giving back. My students created grant proposals centered around an area of our district they feel passionate about improving and set forth to do so by researching the benefits of their proposed ideas. Below is exactly what my students wrote for their grant proposals. Thank you for your consideration!

Through this grant proposal projects, my students learned how to write for a real audience with real-world applications. This project has taught them the value of working together and equally distributing work to reach a common goal. My students experienced the challenge of writing clearly and articulately while simultaneously trying to inspire and motivate.

In Their Own Words

Keeping them active and motivational to move around so they don’t become tired and less focus on work. The materials will be use to give students a more comfortable and relax sitting place to work and study during or after school and the chair provides a perfect armrest for take notes and getting them prepared for how some class make look like in college because some college use different desk and chairs.

Within Bay Port High School we need better desks and chairs to use in the classrooms. With the help from Amazon to fund this project students will feel more relax and comfortable in learning or listen to teacher instead of moving around in their chairs, drawing or making noise using their desk. This is going to help students focus more on learning and making their body more relax while learning.

Thank you for giving this a look over and I hope that you will think about the possibility of our school having these chairs to benefit our students. Even if you chose not to grant us the money, i hope in the future you will help other school to benefit from this and thank you again.

Students will be fixing their posture in class without knowing and they can focus on one thing at a time because there will be plenty of rooms to stretch their body and they will always be moving in theirs chairs to get something or to sit by someone in class. Why because research done Ashley Taylor in Missouri have show that students who stretches before a test or being just active like bouncing a bouncing ball will keep them focus and calmer during class, because towards the end of the day students become restless and tired due to lack of actives.
