My Students

Our charter school is designed for students with dyslexia. It is a relatively newer school that has continued to expand, and this year, 7th grade was added to the school. Our school focuses on multi sensory instruction and requires a great deal experiential learning and hands on activities.

This being said, traditional forms of instruction, lectures, and worksheets is not enough for these students.

Being able to visualize is an imperative aspect to instruction in order for student success.

However, since this grade level was just added this year and my co-teacher and I are new teachers, we lack some items in our math class that we would find to be beneficial for our students. We are hoping to obtain a smart TV that we can use as teachers to help teach our students to be problem solvers and help them understand the big ideas involved in 7th grade math!

My Project

Students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities may have trouble understanding content that is delivered through traditional instruction. Using multi-sensory instruction with the aid of technology gives the students a new way to view and "look" at math. The use of this technology and other visual aids are just some of the resources that can be used to help the students be successful. Working with technology helps them to visually piece the math together to ensure they make the manful connections that are needed to help understand the content. For example, the SMART TV can allow for me the teacher to show students on the white board the steps to a math equation by showing my work. The SMART TV then projects that work onto the whiteboard so all students in the class can see and understand those steps.
