Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

The last school year was so challenging for all our students. We operated on a hybrid model where the students only attended school every other day and were required to complete schoolwork at home on their beyond the building day. Some students were completely distance learning. Everyone struggled with this.

These kids are now back in school and learning in a new normal that requires them to wear masks at all times inside the building.

Many of my students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds, with limited resources available. I want to help alleviate this. Our school, built in 1965, is a Title I school in Nevada, serving 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students with 100% participation in the free breakfast and lunch program. Students are grouped in teams to build relationships with faculty, staff, and peers. This allows them to keep the same core set of teachers who will stay with them for their entire middle school journey. Team Texas is home to a diverse group of young people all striving to do the best they can with the materials they have.

My Project

The materials chosen for this project will be used to help students practice science concepts. At our school, we use FOSS kits to teach science. While these kits are great at delivering the content, they often lack the resources that will allow students to practice at home what they have learned in class. Often times, I will create my own supplemental resources or search online, which have limitations due to the online resource not being created well or needing to purchase a subscription. The selected materials for this project are aligned to what we work on in middle school (chemistry, environmental science, earth science, physical science, and life science).

In order for students to be successful, they need practice to retain the information they have learned in class as well as engage in activities that are interesting and relevant.

These books will also help me create a curriculum for those students that are excluded from school and don't have access to an online platform to get materials. I can quickly create a packet of work for them to take home that follows the curriculum we are using right now in school. The tape and tape dispensers will just add to my supply and make sure that every student has access to the materials they need to tape their work into their interactive science notebooks.
