My students need modeling clay, wire, clay tools, green screen paper and an iPad holder.
I teach urban middle school kids from working class homes with diverse family structures. My students are motivated, talented, hardworking and full of energy. More than half of my students receive free or reduced-cost lunches. They may not be rich with money but they are rich in empathy and willingness to learn. My students deserve a fair opportunity to grow and succeed. They are diverse in their skills and talents. Some of my students think school is more exciting than summer vacation!
My students love hands-on projects. Traditional teaching has been that the teacher stands in front of the class and teaches a concepts while the students follow and then practice. I have found this technique to work for many students but not all.
I want to have student create stop motion movies to explain difficult mathematical concepts.
Students will need a stabilizer for the iPad, a green screen for the back drop and clay with wire to bring numbers to life.
The students will keep their movies under two minutes and share their videos with each other so that all students have many explanations of important mathematical concepts. I want to reach all my students and you can help.
