Mrs. Morganflash from Fort Smith AR is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning Economics in a Cooperative Environment

My students need Kagan CDs that have music to help them concentrate. The cooperative grammar and social studies books will allow me to create cooperative lessons.

My Students

My students long to work together in their teams. The Kagan music cd's will allow me to create an environment conducive to learning while the core content books will allow me to create cooperative lessons that engage the students in their learning.

My class is made up of 25 wonderful boys and girls of mixed races in Arkansas.

They attend a Title 1 School, which means there is a high percentage that qualify for free or reduced lunch. These 8 and 9 year-old students are very eager learners who love a challenge.

My Project

Kagan uses many different structures to help students learn in a cooperative environment. The Kagan materials will be used throughout the day to help raise the "human capital" of each and every student. The different books will help students learn much needed skills, such as math concepts and grammar using structures such as quiz-quiz-trade, round robin, inside-outside circle, and many other structures.

Through Kagan cooperative learning, my boys and girls will be actively engaged.

Every ten minutes students will be involved in a structure from one of the resources where they are actively engaged discussing content. They will excel in economics as well as the other areas of the curriculum.
