"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning." - Albert Einstein This quote captures the essence of what I want my students to take away from my class. I want them to always question the world around them and strive to learn new things.
I teach an energetic group of eighth graders who love learning.
They have an innate curiosity for obtaining information about the world around them and I want to encourage them to continue their love of learning by exposing them to current events in the science. We have over 700 students in our middle school and funding for school supplies for all of these students is difficult. My students deserve the best that I can offer them.
With a classroom set of Science World magazines, my students will have the world of science at their fingertips. We will use these magazines to incorporate literacy skills into the science classroom. We will make connections to the science topics we cover in eighth grade to global issues facing us today. We will use the chart paper and markers to create anchor charts about current science topics and events that will allow us to analyze these topics further and incorporate them into our curriculum.
Students in the classroom today are the future of this country and the world.
I strongly believe that having knowledge and respect of world topics and alternative viewpoints is an essential 21st century skill to have. I feel that putting current events right into their hands is one of the best ways possible to allow my students to gain access to what is going on in the world of science today.
