My Students

I came into my classroom in the middle of the school year after taking a .6 job teaching Social Studies at my middle school. My students have been, and are, some of the most diverse people I've had the pleasure of teaching, especially considering this is my first teaching job and my own sections. My students represent different and vast personalities, races, economic backgrounds, and more importantly, cultural backgrounds. Some of my students are ENL or ELL learners and are not able to supply themselves with materials they need. Some of my students also come from disadvantaged families and are not able to supply themselves with the materials they need. Regardless of their background and hardships, they come to class everyday smiling and ready to learn, although they question from time to time the point of my class and learning social studies.

My Project

It is my belief that in Social Studies differentiation is extremely important for students. Social Studies is such a reading heavy subject that new methods of learning are important not only to engage students, but to also give students who may struggle with reading a chance to actively learn the content taught in class. With these headphones, I would not only be able to have my students listen to educational videos in the classroom, but I would be closer to achieve my own teaching goal and style which is to use gamification in the classroom, especially with the usage of the students chromebooks. Students would be able to independently work without disturbing others, but also students can and will be equipped with materials that they might not have access to at home.
