My Students

My students are difficult to sum up. They are diverse and quirky. They come from different backgrounds and a wide range of socioeconomic circumstances. They also have a wide range of interests and are ridiculously well-rounded for teenagers! Some of them think of themselves as history scholars; some of them as emerging scientists and artists.

One thing that they all have in common is that they are intensely thoughtful, creative, critical thinkers who are passionate about their educations and excited to acquire the tools to help them delve deeper into their work here without having to worry about some of the "basics".

My Project

My students are super scholarly and sometimes we need a break in focused text analysis and readings. We're adding a short unit on Gilded Age political cartoons as a way for them to think through the medias response to the Gilded Age.

As a way to creatively process the content, students will create their own political cartoons that consider and analyze the class chasm between the big business leaders and the working class.

So much of my students' time is spent heavily engaged with complex texts and formal analysis, the donation of these materials will help my history classroom to be more dynamic! My students need erasers, tape, sticky notes, an easel pad, and pens because we are committed to group work and having students work on large chart paper makes the most sense for their process. That way, everyone has room to collaborate! They'll use the chart paper, pens and erasers to create the political cartoons and at the end of our work, we'll have a gallery walk where the students can comment on each other's work with post-it notes!
