My Students

My students attend a rural, low socioeconomic community high school in the foothills of North Carolina. Our school receives free breakfast and lunch for every student provided by a federal needs based grant. My students are more engaged in learning when they can get up and move around. At lot of my students are good with their hands and learn better when they are given a concrete task. I teach several classes which contain students with diverse learning styles and short attention spans.

My Project

Our math department has been using breakout boxes to engage students in mathematical problem solving. The concept is similar to escape rooms that have recently become very popular. These activities involve students working collaborative using content related material to open locked boxes or "breakout boxes". The boxes require students to persist in solving higher level thinking problems while maintaining the aura of excitement similar to a mystery game. This motivates students who do not enjoy the traditional seat work and those who have a kinesthetic learning preference. We will use the blacklights and new locks to expand our current breakout materials to keep the students interested and engaged.
