My Students

My school is the coat of many colors. It is Title I but doesn't reflect the stigma that comes along with that designation. As the Instructional Technology Resource Teacher I have the pleasure of working with every single student in my building. They are a caring group of kids who are eager to learn, especially when we make the learning into a game.

My school is in a tight knit community and many students have parents who attended this school when they were children themselves.

My students take a lot of pride in being a member of our school community. It is an honor to work with these children.

My Project

These materials will enable me to create seven breakout boxes to bring the excitement and challenge of an escape room into the classroom. The boxes will contain clues that students will have to solve. After solving one clue they move onto the next, similar to how an escape room works.

Using the escape room technique with students is an excellent way to practice and reinforce Social Emotional Learning as well as 21st-century skills.

Working in teams of 3-4, students must collaborate, communicate, think critically and be creative to escape the breakout challenge. These boxes can be used as a stand-alone lesson without technology or can be used in a hybrid way that involves solving online riddles and clues as well as ones with paper and pencil.
