My Students

My high school is a low income school with about fifty percent with low/reduced lunch. Most of the students in my classroom are on free lunch and can't afford some of the basic school supplies. My students work hard and love working together with others in the school. We are separated from the other students in a corner of the school, but the students take it upon themselves to go out and talk to general education students as much as they can.

I teach students in a high school setting with disabilities.

The disabilities range from a mild cognitive to students on the autism spectrum. I have students from 14-22 years of age, meaning students can stay with me for up to about 7 years. In my classroom we cover each subject, community jobs, and other life skills curriculum subjects. Since I can have the same student for 7 years changing the way my classroom is run changes quite often so that those repeat students don't get bored.

My Project

Hot Dots have played a major role in my classroom this year. We are currently using them for the basic subjects and I am wanting to add to my list. Students enjoy using the interactive pens to find out if the answers they are giving to the questions being asked are correct. The pens also give students feedback right away and they don't have to wait for another adult to let them know how they are doing. I am hoping to get the different pens to give my students a chance of variety in what they hear and use.

The Education Insights Hot Dots helps to make learning fun for all students in my classroom and it can be used to explore every subject!

The Hot Dots that I am hoping to get this time around are ones to make our interactive time more fun and engaging. It gives them more subjects to choose from and will also help with their goals.
