This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.
I'm blessed to spend my days teaching the most amazing middle school students who have various disabilities and needs that make a smaller setting with a low pupil to teacher ratio the best setting for them to learn.
"I am different, not less!" is a quote by Dr. Temple Grandin, who is one of the heroes we study every year.
This quote is a driving force in our classroom. We are a family and our school is a community. No two days look the same.
Distance learning brought my class an unexpected blow these past 5+ months. I was able to duplicate a lot of our class activities with the assistance of BrainPOP Jr. Unfortunately our free trial ended in July and my students haven't had access to a program they loved and became comfortable with through these challenging times.
By using this program, my students get multiple ways to learn new material and show what they know.
It accommodates multiple learning styles and abilities that other programs simply cannot do. Most importantly, the consistency of using a program they know removes a potential barrier to online learning success.
