Walking into my classroom, you can find my students working on various Reader's Workshop activities, such as a small group working with their book club group to analyze their book, while another group is reading independently, while another group is working on writing about their reading. Finally, you will find me on the floor, providing a small group differentiated instruction.
My classroom is a culturally diverse Title I school.
Our school became a STEM and Workshop school in order to increase student engagement and overall literacy. As a STEM and Workshop school, students regularly participate in inquiry through STEM activities and engage in learning through a student centered workshop instructional model. Inside my classroom, I have a wide range of learners that include students who are English Language Learners, students at grade level, students in special education, and students who also need academic challenge. In addition, more than 50% of my students receive free or reduced-priced lunch. Given the diversity in my classroom, my students have been able to come into our classroom community, work together as a team, and develop a love and understanding for learning!
The materials for this project will make a significant impact in my students' learning because they will have access to primary and secondary sources as they read, research, and learn about the events leading up to the American Revolution; as well as, the causes of the American Revolution and the impact Declaring Independence had on the various members of the colonies. Without this book, our students would struggle to find primary and secondary sources online, which would prevent students from gaining a full understanding of the role the American Revolution had not only on the United States and Britain, but also on citizens and slaves who were living in the colonies at the time.
