Collaborating in a 21st Century World

My students need dry erase boards to complete group work in our English class.

My Students

Emphasizing an interdisciplinary model of learning, my partner teacher and I are tearing down the walls between our English and history classrooms, metaphorically, this year and with a plan to really break down walls for next year!

Moving towards a more humanities-centered model, our classroom will need many items to help establish a pleasant learning environment.

Located in a large urban high school, my students are part of a smaller learning community that is focused on interdisciplinary connections, project-based learning, service to the community, and integrating global issues within the curriculum. Our program is open to all students, regardless of their background or prior learning, so this is not a magnet program; rather it is a rigorous program that hopes to connect a diverse range of students from our larger community who are entering our program with a range of academic experiences and background knowledge of history.

My Project

As classrooms move more to address the needs of the 21st century economy and society, a shift in instructional pedagogy is needed. To be successful in this new world, students need skills such as communication, collaboration, and creativity. The design of a typical classroom is individual desks facing the teacher, but my classroom has morphed into groups of tables with students working in collaborative groups for much of the day.

As part of this shift, our classroom needs whiteboards spaced around the room so these groups can brainstorm and work on assignments together with an easily viewable workspace.

Because the dry erase boards are magnetic, they can also be used to display learning materials when they aren't being utilized by student groups.
