My Students

Marian Wright Edelman once said "Education is improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it." This year I have the honor of having an all boys roster in Shreveport, Louisiana. My students are inquisitive individuals who are eager to learn how they can leave their imprint on today's society.

In this classroom we focus on building a safe learning environment that welcomes different views on real world issues.

My students are searching for knowledge and understanding on how Louisiana history can shape their future. Most of them have limited access to technology at home which makes giving homework in the form of project based learning difficult. With your help we can incorporate projects that will engage my students and help them make the necessary real world connections that could ignite change in the school and their communities. It is exciting to imagine what my students will be able to accomplish when given the tools they need to be successful.

My Project

The dry erase easel boards will be used to display instructions for group activities. They will also be used to display exemplar activities so students will know what the end product should look like prior to submitting for final grades. Students will be doing ongoing research in Louisiana history identifying how the Mississippi River has been the cause for compromise and conflict in Louisiana's multicultural society.

The Mississippi River has been a source for trade and transportation fueling not only Louisiana's economy but the United States as well.

Students will create a multimedia presentation explaining how the Mississippi River shaped the economic identity of Louisiana. Students will maintain and update presentations in an electronic portfolio on Google Drive. Students will be able to reflect on how important the Mississippi River is to Louisiana's economic growth.

The snacks I am requesting will be used as incentives for quality work and well formulated claims proving the importance of the Mississippi River to the financial stability of the state of Louisiana.
