Our scholars are amazing, resilient people. I teach in an inner-city middle school where the majority of students actively face poverty and trauma. Within this school, I serve as a special educator on the Integrated Co-Teaching Team, meaning that about half of our 90 students are also facing disabilities that impact their learning.
Despite many obstacles, including trauma, poverty, chromosomal differences, autism spectrum disorder, and learning disabilities, our students come to school each day and give their best.
They are creative, artistic, multisensory learners with many leadership capabilities, and I am honored to include you in their educational journey by inviting you to be a part of this special project I've decided to embark upon just for them.
We are about to study ancient Egypt in social studies. Rather than keeping learning in the textbook, we want our students to imagine themselves as ancient Egyptians living their lives. We're planning to actually write on papyrus to think about being scribes.
These materials will allow us to make papyrus bookmarks in the style of ancient Egyptian scribes.
They will also help us store the materials. We are an ICT class with a number of learners who have challenges with sitting still, and the bouncy bands will support them in staying still and safe while we work on our projects.
