My Students

I teach English in a campus program called "Colloquium." This program services our campus's Gifted and Talented students but is open to any student open to the challenge and excitement of interdisciplinary instruction and curriculum designed to promote global thinking and creating. Students ask big questions about the world and explore how literature illuminates their place in it.

Gifted learners, creative minds, and warriors of a good story.

These are my students. Ranging from 10th-12th grade, my students are hungry for opportunities to express themselves and make important connections between content and their own world.

My Project

I believe that students often learn more in their peer-to-peer conversations than they will ever learn from direct teacher instructions. This is why my classroom is centered around collaboration and teamwork. When students can work as peer groups to make a good idea great, brainstorm important themes from a recent novel, revise writing and improve organizational skills, and even work through debatable and sensitive topics through civil discourse-- my teacher's heart soars. That's when you know they're ready for whatever comes next in their lives.

Because we know that collaboration and cooperative learning is essential to a fruitful classroom, I want to find as many ways as possible to make that teamwork as productive as possible.

These flipcharts help make thinking visible and provide space for total participation. They promote ownership because they are made to be seen!

I know that these flip charts will help my classroom become a space where every voice is valued and collaboration becomes inherent in our daily routines.
