My Students

My classroom is a representation of the world. I have students of all races, cultures, religions, socioeconomic levels, and abilities. Our school is one of the most diverse schools in the nation!

You can hear over 30 different languages spoken throughout our halls by students from all over the globe.

Despite being a Title I school and having one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation, our students are a family - if only the rest of the world would follow their example.

My Project

Standards-based grading is research-based and focuses on students "leveling" up to mastery. These materials will help me organize resources and assignments for students based on the Fist to Five color-coded system. Providing a clear and easy system will help students be more sufficient in class.

By using the Fist to Five color-coding systems, students will be able to self direct their learning based on the level of mastery they with each standard.

This will help create a more individualed classroom. Students that understand the content will be able to move up through the levels and even complete enhancement activities. This will also allow us to have small groups and more individualized reteaching with students that are struggling.
