My Students

This year, we have approximately 100 8th grade students at the Middle School. I work in a small, rural middle school in North Dakota, and we are always looking at ways we can improve our students' experience. One thing I am heavily focused on is improving student engagement.

Through the use of creativity, games, escape rooms, and other activities, we have increased student engagement, which has caused our students to make great academic growth.

Our goal as a school is to increase academic rigor through the increase of student engagement. We have some extremely creative teachers and a supportive administration who are dedicated to reaching this goal. We have been provided with amazing professional development by the Ron Clark Academy, which has been the driving force behind our goal.

My Project

Our school has made a commitment to increase student engagement in all classrooms. After visiting the Ron Clark Academy, we learned many new ways to make our lessons fun and exciting, while still having high academic rigor.

Through the use of classic board games (with an academic twist, of course), our goal is to increase student engagement to positively affect academic growth, in all curricular areas.

We have piloted this with two games (Jenga and Hungry Hungry Hippo) and have been amazed at the results. By having multiple games to use, we hope to keep each day new and fresh to keep the students excited and on their toes.
