My school is an innovative school. This means that our school family has been given the chance to provide our students with more meaningful and rigorous learning opportunities. The majority of scholars at my school receive free and/or reduced lunch and breakfast. Many of my student do not have adequate supplies. I want to meet those needs by providing scholars with the comfort of knowing that our classroom is a safe and clean environment. They should not have to worry about the cleanliness of our classroom.
Project-based learning kits are hands-on experience for students to explore different subject areas. Hands-on instruction has been proven to be more effective in classrooms than regular methods of teaching. Students are able to work independently and answer their own questions about how things work. They will gain skills that they can use later in life as our world continues to advance with technology.
My students will be learning how to solve everyday problems, such as, how to use less trash, how to make sure you are following a healthy lifestyle, how to prevent the spread of germs, and the effects of cyberbullying.
All of these topics are important to my students' lives. Having the opportunity to make a difference is essential to their future because they will need to enter the world with the proper problem solving skills for everyday obstacles. Students will learn so much more than just about their topic. They will learn to be problem solvers.
