My Students

Carbon dioxygenide is NOT a component of our atmosphere, but because my students have not heard the name of this molecule regularly in their lives, many still pronounce it this way.

I am a public school teacher in an urban district in Missouri.

Students in my 11th grade chemistry course enter from a wide variety of different countries at a wide range of reading and math levels. Some students have the ability to read, understand, and apply information directly from a peer-reviewed journal article, while others still struggle to read a 3rd grade text.

My Project

I'm thankful for the diversity of students at my school and the interaction it causes across cultural boundaries. I know the experience students have will lead them to become more aware and appreciative of other cultures throughout their lives. As a teacher, the diversity helps to provide a rich chemistry curriculum exploring the chemical developments of various cultures, but it also provides a challenge for my ability to immerse all students in the process of chemistry. A class set of headphones would allow students to hear chemistry while interacting with it on a regular basis. This additional tool would help develop chemical literacy for all my students so that they'll all be able to create and communicate using what they've learned.

Your support of this project will help my students be able to learn at their individualized pace as they develop their chemical literacy.

This will help them grow in science and communication.
