My Students

Our preschool through eighth grade community is dedicated to providing a safe and positive learning environment in which students will be encouraged and supported to reach their full academic potential. We are an inner-city Title 1 school where all students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

We believe that EVERY CHILD is capable of success…NO EXCEPTIONS!

Our teachers and staff value:

• Effective instruction

• Positive school culture and climate

• Intervention support services

• Community activities

• Development of leadership skills

My Project

Cooperative learning is a successful teaching strategy in which small teams, each with students of different levels of ability, use a variety of learning activities to improve their understanding of a subject. Each member of a team is responsible not only for learning what is taught but also for helping teammates learn, thus creating an atmosphere of achievement. The professional resource books I am requesting provide information and guidance for teachers to use Kagan Structures (a cooperative learning framework) in the classroom.

Documented results include improved academic achievement, improved behavior and attendance, increased self-confidence and motivation, and increased liking of school and classmates.

Cooperative learning is also relatively easy to implement and is inexpensive.

I want to use these Kagan books to effectively implement cooperative learning while teaching math and reading. I am not very creative so it is helpful to have these resources to use.
