My students need dry erase boards, dry erase markers, and highlighters.
My students are smart, but they don't always know how to show it.
I teach in Harlem.
My students are growing writers. Some are learning to write for the first time as they are recent immigrants to this country. Others are learning to talk for the first time. Others have known how to write and talk their whole lives, but do not yet know how to communicate respectfully and listen respectfully to the ideas of others.
My students need engaging and exciting ways to communicate with each other. By using highlighters of different colors and dry erase boards, students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of course content DURING class. They will be held accountable by holding their dry erase boards up to show how they would spell the vocab word. They will have to actively write using the dry erase board and pick which color they want. This will activate their visual and kinetic intelligences. During the mini-lesson, students can doodle on their boards or take notes. Additionally, they will trade dry erase boards with their partner, read what their partner wrote, and comment underneath as a way for students to prepare for our class discussions. The dry erase board is a harmless form of assessing because students can easily correct mistakes or change errors with a swish of their thumb. Highlighters will also help us teach annotation strategies every day in class which is a college skill.
With your gift, I can build a set of scaffolding which will help my students communicate with each other and help simultaneously engage my students and assess their comprehension of the reading we are doing in class during key "checks for understanding".
