My Students

Our school is an amazing place with students from all over the world: India, South Korea, China, Japan, Kenya, Senegal, Ghana, Egypt, Russia, El Salvador, Mexico. This diversity makes our school a vibrant place to learn. As the ESL teacher, my students are English language learners with a wide variety of native languages from Telugu to Swahili to Spanish. They have varied experiences and enriching perspectives, along with an intense desire to learn and grow.

Although our school is a high-performing school, there is a noticeable achievement gap.

Many of my ESL students are performing well below their monolingual peers, mainly due to their lack of exposure to the English language. Science can also be especially challenging because of the heavy vocabulary load.

My Project

This project includes a class set of colorful books to explain the concepts in the science unit: force and motion. This unit tends to be dry and boring for some students, but with the right materials, we can increase engagement! By reading together and collaborating, my English learners will have the support they need to understand challenging concepts and vocabulary words.

This project also includes exciting, hands-on materials to make science come alive!

By building things, such as ramps and cars, students can explore forces and motion, make predictions, test hypotheses, and play their way into a deeper understanding of concepts such as acceleration, friction, and gravity.
