Help me give my students a binding machine for the gift of being able to publish their projects and books.
Gone are the days of learning through worksheets or independently. My students were born as digital natives with all the answers at their fingertips. However what my students crave are the opportunities to synergize with each other. My goal is to help my students become collaborative and synergic. To meet those needs, I must provide a way to help them work together and find their voice.
My classroom is a unique community.
It is filled with all types of students coming from all types of backgrounds. They each possess their individual genius, but also their individual academic challenges. One thing is consistent throughout each student, they all possess an extraordinary thirst for knowledge. The students yearn for experiences that challenge their thinking and produce questions. With this in mind, I want to expand beyond the push of academics and help them build a strong character foundation. When my students leave me at the end of the year, I want them to not only take away what they have learned academically, but also what they have learned about themselves as leaders.
Part of developing the whole child is helping them to take pride in their work. To help quench the thirst for knowledge I love to incorporate project-based learning and STEM into our classroom. This requires students to challenge their thinking, be creative, and work over time to create something special.
Watching a project develop over time requires patience and a greater appreciation at its completion.
To help reward my students for their hard work and perseverance, I would love to be able to give them the gift of publication. This project would allow me to bind their works of art and add a protective cover. It would give my students a professional pride and allow them to take their ideas to a new height.
