My Students

My students are classified as special education students. They are classified with different disabilities, most prominent speech and language difficulty. My school receives students from the homeless shelter. The school also provide uniforms, food, and various other supplies to the students are housed in homeless shelters. My school's population is made up of 47% English Language Learners.

My students are low-level readers but have a great passion for books, a passion for learning , and they try really hard despite their disability.

The students in my class come from all cultures, such as Ghana, Puerto Rico, and American. My students smile every day and are eager learn new things. They like to use the fine Motor skills to create and construct things.

Despite my student's disabilities, I push them hard to come close to grade level in the content area. I always tell my students, a disability is a condition, it doesn't define who you are. So, with that being said , I have high expectations for my students.

My Project

My students will be introduced to the concept of economics through a hand on experience and these activities will allow my students to show these concepts in action.

My students will be able to develop skills in economics, and get an understanding of what is wants and needs, how to exchange money, they will learn how to budget money and to save money .

Through these activities my students will also get an understanding if goods and the role of suppliers, manufacture, distributors and retailers in the supply chain.

This practice will help them with the life skills of knowing how to handle and mange money and how the retail world works.
