My Students

In my class I strive daily to prepare my students for the world with not only knowledge, but to bestow upon them a zest and passion for lifelong learning. They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet.

They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers.

They are our future and I want to give them a great start to their long, successful careers.

My Project

Most of my students are just now starting to want to read on their own time. These books will help provide additional perspectives of historical events in an engaging manner that appeals to the middle school age group. The purposeful illustrations on the covers help to provide the visual student just what they need to understand the content. Additionally, taking Cornell Notes will be more exciting because the books Orbiting Jupiter and Refugee books I am requesting show how students can take important information about history and turn them into colorful annotations that include images, thought bubbles, and sketches that will include their thinking which in turn will tap into various learning intelligences.

With the inclusion of these books, student notes will become less monotonous so learning can occur that accesses students' multiple intelligences.

The inclusion of these books will open the door to integrating art with their notes! Additionally, discussing financial decisions made during these time periods will allow us to make better financial plans for the future!
