Chromebooks for Enhancing Language Arts and Social Studies Content!

My students need a set of laptops in Language Arts and Social Studies in order to access online information and applications for further engagement and comprehension.

My Students

Fun, creative, brilliant, innovative, motivated...These are just a few ways that I describe my 6th grade students. I teach students from varying backgrounds and ability levels. Some of my students have access to computers, cell phones, and tablets at home, but others do not. My 6th graders have interests such as band, singing, dancing, drawing, horseback riding, basketball, video gaming, and vlogging. My main goal as a teacher is to encourage each of my students to learn while embracing their personal interests and strengths. I want to give my students a classroom environment that invites them to explore the world. My students are the future, and the future is looking bright!

My Project

When people think of Language Arts and Social Studies classes, they may not think of "innovative", "future-driven", and "technology-based", but I'm here to change that perception. By adding 5 Chromebooks to my classroom, I will be able to create content that is stimulating and interactive. I plan to create small group rotations in order to accommodate my 29-34 students per class. In Language Arts, we will research current events to use for nonfiction text study, as well as use programs that differentiate articles based on each students' individual reading level. In Social Studies, we will look at Ancient Civilizations in new ways using Google Earth, virtual museum "field trips", and creative projects.

Using Chromebooks to enhance learning will keep all of my students engaged and help bring them into a 21st century education.

My ideal classroom setting would be project and inquiry-based, where students are able to investigate, discover information, and create projects that reflect their knowledge effectively. I recently assigned a project that required my students to connect the Eightfold Path in Buddhism to the prompt "how to be more compassionate in school". I reserved one of our school's Chromebook carts and almost all of my students jumped right into making funny and brilliant videos based on the prompt. By giving them the freedom to create, my students were able to prove their Social Studies knowledge, and show me their creative strengths. I am so happy that I gave them the choice to use technology, and wish that I had access to laptops in the classroom daily. In the age of YouTube and constant internet connectivity, I want to connect my students to information and outlets that will enhance their love for learning.
