My Students

My students are enthusiastic learners faced with the challenges associated with an inner city school district. Every student receives free breakfast and lunch in this poverty stricken school. The students are upbeat and energetic preteens with the ability to succeed when supported.

Without access to textbooks or the internet at home the students need to create their own resources.

With the help of their teachers, students are learning to push through the challenges of their home lives and succeed academically.

My Project

Students will use art supplies to create a book of each human body system. With clear cut goals the students will create an informational text that they can use as a resource when completing assignments. or studying.

Without the use of textbooks or wifi at home the self created human body book will be a valuable resource.

Working in groups of three the students will research each body system. Using the art supplies the team will create a creative version of a mini textbook. Having the students research, write and create the text them selves will help the to learn all about their own body, clearing up many misconceptions.
