My students need thread for their sewing and quilting projects in their enrichment class.
My students live in a large, urban city and attend one of four high schools in a geographic zone of choice. All of the daily transitions, 700-students-high school, and large community can lead to a sense of anonymity.
I make sure I learn everyone's name the first day of class and greet students at the door each day, by name.
I work to individualize their education and differentiate their experience by designing lessons that flow at their own pace. After an initial whole group engagement, students work through a series of activities, with a partner, their group, or individually, depending on the lesson. Extending the due dates and time to complete tasks allows students to work at their own pace and review content and lessons as needed before evaluation. I have found these strategies to increase student engagement and academic performance.
My homeroom quilting class is an enrichment class, composed of students who are current with their graduation credits. Instead of additional intervention or study hall, they elect to take an enrichment class.
The students in my quilting class are a mix of 10th and 11th graders who are learning to sew for the first time.
They have made a pincushion, a back pack, and a pillow case, all with just black and grey thread. As they are poised to start their next, more sophisticated project, they could use a better selection of thread. Not only will your donation improve their product, it will send a strong message that you believe recreational hobbies such as quilting are an important part of being a well rounded student.
