My Students

My students are the 7th and 8th grade middle school kids in a K-8 school in Queens. A diverse group of students from varying socioeconomic backgrounds, they include all academic levels, students with disabilities, and ICT classes. Ranging in age from 11 to 14, many of them struggle with science and math concepts. They do best with hands on activities that support what they read about in texts.

They are young adults striving to be the best they can be.

My Project

I was a strong student as a child. The teacher said it, we observed it, I understood it. I was lucky. As a teacher on the other side of the classroom, I now know that is not the case for many students, especially when it comes to math and science concepts.

The students that struggle the most with comprehending latitude and longitude are the ones that also have trouble with graphing.

After twelve years of teaching these concepts, I still have students I just can't seem to reach. While some get it right away, others never really seem to fully comprehend the idea of a coordinate system on our planet. After searching the internet and speaking to many science and social studies teachers over the years, it finally occurred to me to ask a math teacher for help. BINGO - BATTLESHIP! She has used the game in her classroom for years and says it even helps those that struggle the most. I am looking forward to trying this new way to teach such an important concept.
