My Students

I have a unique and dynamic group of young adults that bring a great learning style to the school and especially to my science class. Science is an area that will challenge and support students in every walk of their career or job. With these materials, students will be ready to gather, research, and analyze all data before concluding their solutions.

My students are eager to learn through thought-provoking questions, engaging in hands-on activities, and being able to apply their comprehension to real-life​ experiences.

When my scholars walk in, they want to know what are we learning for today! Help my Scholars to be excited about Science!

My Project

Students will read given scenarios in groups and use all their context clues to maneuver through clues to open the correct lock to reveal the surprise. Students will be given a select topic and they will work collaboratively to solve problems that they can apply in the real world. All students will be held accountable by each group member by using their prior knowledge and expertise to help the group solve each problem. Students may be given the selected text that will support the areas of other content areas such as social studies, performing arts, mathematics, and other valuable content areas. Students will have to read the provided text, use technology devices to research content that may not be familiar to them, engage in writing their gathered information to solve the puzzle to each lock and verbally communicate with each other. ​Students will walk away with a feeling of being able to work through life's challenges with the processing skills and retrieving prior knowledge to solve any issue they may face.
