Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My scholars are IB students at an urban inner-city school. Our curriculum is both diverse and rigorous. We strive to provide high-quality education to students from all walks of life. My classroom is project-based, and scholars lead their own learning with guidance and examples from both me and other professionals in the field. Fulfilling goals set by them for them helps my scholars learn the importance of independence and free-thinking.

My students are special because of their universal drive to achieve rigorous academic goals for college and beyond.

They are public-school students who have opted into an extremely demanding college preparatory program. About 60% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price meals, and our student body represents a diverse group of black, white, Latino, multiracial, and Asian students from all neighborhoods of a large city in Indiana.

My Project

The stretch between winter break and spring break can feel like the most tedious part of the school year. Students are tired, the weather is miserable, and it seems that there is no break in sight. My seniors need a boost of enthusiasm as they prepare for their IB exams, and my juniors need engaging instruction as they make their way through one of the most demanding academic seasons of their lives so far. I am fundraising to purchase these classroom essentials so that my students can participate in more collaborative learning activities.

Please help me purchase Crayola markers and easel paper so that my students can engage in interactive learning activities, including jigsaws, Kagan structures, and presentations.

These materials will go a long way to ensure that my students can be active participants in their learning and position themselves as leaders in the classroom and the world. This will help us make it to spring break as joyful, curious, and collaborative learners. I thank you in advance for investing in the young people of Indianapolis!
