Mr. Gordon from New York NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need high quality nonfiction books for units on microbiology, ecology, and climate change.
My students are special because they represent a wide range of learners, both in terms of their social emotional development and their academic abilities. Two of my three classes are ICT and I teach with a co-teacher. Together, we strategize on how to best meet the various needs of all of our students. When planning, we think about the best resources and materials to use that will help push our students to develop the strongest conceptual understanding of the material possible. Our school uses a workshop model approach to teaching which focuses on students becoming independent thinkers and learners. Project work drives the learning at our school. The resources we would receive will allow us to implement our projects with greater success.
Our unit on the Hudson River focuses on concepts relating to ecology. In order for my students to build their background knowledge, they need nonfiction texts that cover a variety of these ecological concepts to immerse them in the content. We will start out the unit with immersion reading with these new library books and create teaching tools to demonstrate our new knowledge. From there, we will continue the inquiry cycle and begin specialized research on the Hudson River ecosystem.
The end product for the project will be a coffee table book about the Hudson River ecosystem.
Each group in the class specializes in a specific organism and creates a chapter for the book that looks at how their organism has been impacted by the invasion of the zebra mussel.
