Mapping the Future!
My students need 100 composition notebooks to keep up with all notes taken during class. These notebooks will serve as their one stop organizational tool for Social Studies.
Question of the Day? How many of my students will have a notebook to take notes and review information with ease. According to last year's numbers not many of my 98 students had a composition notebook. Please help us to get organized and focused on Social Studies.
My school consists of an array of backgrounds.
There is no majority (51%+) in terms of race/ethnicity, however it does lean more towards an African-American majority. In the school about 72% of students are on free or reduced lunch, making us 3% shy of being a Title I school with access to funding.
My students are very different when it comes to their backgrounds. However, organization is something that most lack. In school there is a lot of structure throughout the day to ease transitions and tensions thanks to the leadership within our school. Our school is centered in a large yet disconnected community which makes it very difficult for community support of school programs and initiatives.
Have you ever held onto a notebook from one grade to another? No? Neither have I. However, the years where I really excelled were when I was organized and attempted to maintain that organization. Clutter, as we know, can create havoc in the work place. This theory not only applies and works for us adults, but it also can help students grow into organized adults who are able to focus on their tasks as opposed to clutter.
On very rare occasions do my kids come to me organized and able to maintain this organization throughout the year.
I want to at least give them a tool to be used exclusively for Social Studies so they will not have to worry about papers scattered throughout their book bags and our classroom. This will help them to better focus and have previously learned content readily available.
