Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students arrive each day full of eager enthusiasm for new exploration, in their world of learning. They come from a diverse variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Some arrive as English Language Learners with very limited understanding of the language. The Intermediate Learning Center integrates their students into my classroom for science, writing, homeroom and specials. These students struggle with social emotional issues while trying to learn the challenging curriculum. Their diagnoses include a wide range on the Autism Spectrum. Frequent movement and hands-on activities are important prerequisites to their learning.
Collaboration with 4th and 5th grade partners, using the Dr. Suess' book, "The Lorax," has prepared students to find solutions to save endangered species on our planet, while it undergoes climate change.
Learning to write solutions in code, on Google's Scratch program, allows their innovative solutions to be published and viewed as real world problem solving.
The students engage in partnerships that promote collaboration and innovation to discover new solutions to real world problems. As they learn to code, or program their computer on Scratch, they become excited to share their learning, for a real world purpose, that effects purposeful change.
