My Students

Our local middle school serves approximately 650 students in grades 6-8. Our population consists of a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds, including a large number participating in the free and reduced lunch program. The majority of our students come to school eager to learn and put forth an effort.

We have an increasing number of students coming to school unable to focus for long periods of time.

Our school population performs very well on standardized tests, scoring above both the county and state average. A large number of our students participate in school athletics, school clubs and volunteer activities.

My Project

Engaging students in a middle school classroom is not always easy. Kids are quick to give up and become frustrated. Using the individual whiteboards in math class will increase engagement, leading to better understanding of concepts. Let's face it; it's more fun to write on a whiteboard with markers than on paper. If something as simple as this can help improve students' understanding of math, we must take advantage.

Drawing geometric shapes, balancing equations, and solving ratios is more fun with markers and a whiteboard!

I am hoping to give my students a class set to use during math class, practicing the skills we are learning. I am always searching for ways to keep my students interested in class and this is a simple, sure-fire way! We will use the whiteboards in class to solve our daily warmups, play math games, and use as "scrap paper" during independent practice. They are portable, save paper from being wasted and are easy to erase mistakes. My students would benefit greatly from a class set of whiteboards and graphing mats.
