Dr. Tucci from Danbury CT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Research and Inquiry in Social Studies

My students need five Chromebooks and damage protection packages for the opportunity to actively research and inquire on the spot in class in order to think critically.

My Students

The students that come to our school are kind, smart, and ready to learn. We have 50+ different languages, over 3000 students, and have one of the largest high schools in Ct.

Our students are fortunate to have the opportunity to partake in AP level courses as we have an open enrollment policy.

Our students come from diverse backgrounds and have varying degrees of reading and writing abilities, but it doesn’t hold them back from taking on an exciting challenge! The students that take my class often leave feeling connected to their community of learners.

My Project

The CT state standards for Social studies require that we have students engaged in the inquiry process. In order to do this, the research process must be taught.

Our school is proud to offer Advance Placement courses to all based on interest alone.

These materials will be used to provide on the spot research, aid the inquiry process, and support small group instruction so I can target specific needs to help each child reach their full potential in AP US History. My job is to get students critically thinking and analyzing the world around them and learn about United State’s history.
