My Students

My students are from Wake county North Carolina. They attend an Alternative School in Raleigh. Students that attend our schools are students that had a difficult time in the traditional setting. Most students here struggle in reading and math. When students come to here it is to receive a second chance, a chance to improve academically and return to their home school's in 9th grade. I want to assist my students by allowing them an opportunity to take control of their education and their educational environment. I feel if they have their own spaces to work during math "Math Corners" if will encourage them to take ownership of their learning.

My Project

Math Corners will allow my students to have student control during their learning. Often times they look to me because they are sitting at desks and I am at the board so they automatically think I have all of the control and all of the answers. Math corners will allow students to feel as though they are in control during collaborative learning.

Alternative seating choices like rugs, pillows, cushions and bean bag chairs will also give those students that need to sit away from the group an opportunity to focus on the task at hand.

Math Corners will also allow the room to become our room instead of the student's referring to it as my room. It will also give students autonomy in their learning environment.
