My Students

My middle school students are excited to learn, and show great enthusiasm when it comes to their work, but simply lack the resources which they need to complete on the global stage.

Furthermore, many of my students show a pronounced inclination towards visual learning.

We need more visual aids in order to increase comprehension and content acquisition.

With resources such as these, they will have access to the highest quality of information available.

Most of my students come from lower socio-economic backgrounds, and some struggle to avoid the dangerous cycle of gang violence prevalent in our community.

My Project

Students need quality visual aids in order to learn and make connections to real world examples. These resources will allow my students better content comprehension, which will give them greater understanding of the subject matter. Furthermore, they will find enjoyment from exploring the learning material as it is presented in a creative and exciting format.

Students with different preferred learning modalities need supplemental resources in order to succeed.

With these resources, they will have better understanding of a variety of subjects, not just the one I happen to teach. By gaining access to these texts, students will learn more, and make better connections to what they already know.
