My students need copies of Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics!
"I hate math!" This is the phrase I hear the most on the first day of school. After years of teaching former dropouts I've come to find that they don't really hate math as much as they hate learning things they can't relate to. By having engaging, relevant lessons, students no longer feel this way!
Our program provides a non-traditional educational opportunity for out-of-school youth, ages 16-21, who desire to achieve a high school diploma and a new chance to fully participate in the economic and social spheres of life through guidance and support.
They are often students who are ready to write a new chapter in their educational lives after many blank pages. We believe that all students deserve to be surrounded by adults who believe in their unlimited, personal potential. We believe that every student deserves an educational environment that is welcoming and safe. We believe that every child deserves rich educational, career, and social-emotional guidance and support in order to define the pathways to the options he or she chooses.
Statistics is the science of data collection, organization, and interpretation. It deals with all aspects of this, including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments. By having texts such as Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics in the classroom that provide interesting examples of statistical studies, I am able to excite and engage students. Furthermore, it serves as an excellent example on summarizing findings for when they conduct experiments of their choosing on topics that they are passionate and excited about. It also provides another opportunity for them to not only read more, but to read text that they are not commonly exposed to. Lastly, by reading such interesting findings they realize that they can learn and have fun!
By creating captivating lessons and units, I give students one more reason to come back everyday, especially those students who need a little extra motivation.
So, please help me help my students learn more and stay in school!Read More
