My Students

My students are fourteen-year-olds who are trying a college class (AP) for the first time. They are witty, kind, and inexperienced. They embrace challenge often having had an insufficient amount academically. They have profound gratitude for opportunities and for the adults in their lives who have sacrificed deeply to provide for them.

My Project

The books will be used to help students gain the personal relevance to global concepts covered in human geography including economic disparity, development, and tribalism. By teaching the skill of dialect journals, both low level readers and advanced readers better analyze content providing them a huge advantage from college texts to business emails.

The mugs will provide a creative keepsake for students who have successfully completed their first college class decorated with their single largest key takeaway.

Self reflection is a metacognitive skill that helps to integrate classroom knowledge with the whole child.
