I teach integrated science to sixth grade students. My school district is located in an economically depressed area and many of our students are lacking academically. As a teacher, I not only need to introduce concepts to many of my underprivileged students, but I also have to push and challenge the better achievers.

There is a diverse range of students in all my classes. I will have the brightest GT students, but I will also be responsible for economically challenged students, special needs students, and minority students. These subgroups have many limitations, and I try to provide as much academic support as I can.

The materials supplied through this grant will enable me to provide hands on lab experiences that will give concrete meaning to the abstract ideas presented in the classroom. The resources I have selected with this grant will reinforce activities in the following areas: Space Science, Plant Science, and Plate Tectonics. These areas are heavily covered in the Arkansas sixth grade frameworks.

Your support will ensure that my students get the most from their experience in sixth grade science. I need to provide them with learning experiences that will provide the best models, examples, and simulations. This, I believe, gives the students the best chance at being successful and gaining the confidence they need in their ability to learn. Your grant money will help me accomplish this.
