My students are driven, determined, and dedicated. I have the privilege of working with gifted and talented students K-5th grade. I'm so excited to be able to facilitate their learning as they take the wheel! My students are creative, motivated and love a challenge.
My students love to problem solve, have an insatiable curiosity and are critical thinkers.
My students need continuous opportunities to explore and create. My desire is to provide learning experiences for them to grow and reach their goals.
My students want to begin recording podcasts in the classroom.
The purpose of this project is to motivate students to develop and refine their writing and speaking skills.
Students are often unmotivated to edit and improve their writing pieces when the teacher is the only audience. Creating a classroom podcast will engage all students in the writing process. Students will take ownership of their ideas, editing, word use, and creativity when they know the final product will be a podcast.
Students will work on creative writing, narratives, and fables throughout the year. Students must use rich language to really make the audience feel like they are really there! Students will design and choose transitions for their podcast. Finally students will record and learn how to speak with expression and clarity.
Students will use podcasts to document their Genius Hour Project process. Students can record clips as an audio journal as they work on research and designing their project.
I can't wait to see the creative ideas my students come up with. I know they will be proud of their final product as they put forth great effort during the process.
