Hooray! This project is fully funded
Showing a student their potential at the most difficult time could be a turning point in their academic career. Help students receive basic tools that are essential to their education.
My students are from diverse cultures and difficulties with so much energy and potential.
They are in a learning environment where agriculture technology and science are the foundation for education. In this environment they focus on high-level skill development and gaining academic skills proficiency. The student's are introduced to urban agriculture courses that cover veterinary science; landscape and design; urban gardening/horticulture; aquaponics; greenhouse techniques; and food science.
Another teacher at my school was able to get funding to take our students to the upcoming film "Just Mercy" in January. We would like to do a joint project that allows students to read and analyze the book when they are finished viewing the movie.
Students will work with me in small groups to read the book and see how it compares to the movie version.
They will be able to find the central idea and themes, diagram the plot line, and compare/contrast the book and film by the time we are done with this unit. We are hoping that the book enhances their understanding of this powerful topic.
