My Students

My 7th-grade students are active learners who love blending technology and education for a variety of collaborative learning experiences. Students work on a variety of collaborative tasks in order to practice literacy skills that apply to aspects of their learning. In the age of misinformation, fake news, and obstacles to finding and understanding objective truths, my students see the importance of understanding how to tell what information is real and what information is not. Our classroom focuses on reading, writing, and evaluating information from a variety of sources.

Artwork is an excellent and equitable way to evaluate student learning in the classroom; integration of art with our learning allows students to show what they've learned in ways that are more than just traditional, but in ways that are exceptional.

My Project

In English Langauge Arts class, students learn that text is everywhere, not just in books. As part of our learning in our English Language Arts class, we will be exploring a variety of artworks and creating our own to show and share our learning with each other.

Giving students the opportunity to show their learning through writing AND artwork provides an equitable learning experience for all students.

Our students work hard to show how much they learn throughout the year, but when all they have access to is a black and white printer, it stifles their ability to prove just how much they've learned and makes the material less interesting to their peers as well. In the past, we've used markers and colored pencils to add color to our black and white prints, however, there's no reason for a modern classroom not to have modern tools.
