Bringing the Ron Clark Academy Experience to Illinois!
I need to attend Ron Clark Academy because I will develop a stronger understanding of rigor and critical and creative thinking skills. I want to bring back engaging and research-based strategies to help my students.
I am truly happy and lucky to work with this diverse and unique group of students. My students are proud of their accomplishments, but also struggle with their weaknesses. I am hoping to be able to attend the Ron Clark Academy so that I may bring back engaging and research-based strategies to help my students to be successful in as many ways as possible. In order to do that I want to change the way I teach my class. I want to think outside of the box to create more engaging activities.
My students come from a low-income school that is at 100% free and reduced lunch.
There are so many inequities my students face, including their community, programs or lack thereof and many more. My goal is to promote engagement in order to allow students to see the endless possibilities of furthering their education.
Imagine walking into a classroom of fully engaged students. They are all working on either independent, partner, or small group activities. ALL students are actively involved in their own learning. They are reading novels, short stories, conferring with a teacher, or writing. Each of my students are learning at a grade level above or higher. They are deep thinkers that enjoy inquiry based learning. Their creativity and higher level thinking is challenged daily through their assignments. The students all come from diverse backgrounds, making our classroom community extremely important.
Due to my students being instructed at a higher level, I know that tools provided to me by attending the Ron Clark Academy will highly benefit my students.
They will grow through the ideas that I learn and implement in our own classroom. The higher level of rigor will challenge them daily. This project will make a difference not only to the students in my room, but others throughout the school. I plan to share my learning other teachers, and encourage them to read the books that are written by Ron Clark.
