My Students

Each of my students has a unique learning style, I love the challenge of finding creative ways to deliver instruction to them that is appealing and engaging. Creating opportunities for students to interact with literature that speaks to them personally will motivate them to become life long learners and lovers of books.

When they are excited about what they are learning, they are engaged and excel.

Reading has to be meaningful and accessible to them. I am looking to build a library of lessons and materials that speaks to their diversity including race, gender, socio-economics, and political views.

My Project

Engaging 21st Century Learners in creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking is challenging. Escape Rooms help the teacher to create fresh and relevant learning experiences Engagement through problem solving and competition simulates video game play and connects the students leisure activities to their learning.

The materials will be used to create puzzles that lead students on a learning adventure.

This is excellent for review, the more they know the further they will get in the challenge. A final debriefing will make sure no students miss information for puzzles they did not solve. Activities can be differentiated for different ability levels and learning styles.
