My Students

Every one of the students in this school learns in a different way, and each of them is profoundly unique. They may be grouped in the same classroom, but they are not the same. Their skin colors are varied, and their backgrounds are as well. Multiple languages are spoken in their homes, and each home has its own struggles. Many students have difficulty concentrating due to ADHD or other special needs, and they need to work hard to compensate.

Students in this school are hard-working, eager-to-learn children, who come from homes where their parents value education but have limited resources to support the process.

This county is one where there is an emphasis on the space program and the science that supports it. All of these students want to learn and they need a strong background in science to compete in the science industry. They may not have much money, but the parents and community are active in the school and value education. They are a joy and a delight to teach. They have a lot of learning to do, and in this class, we strive for success in the process.

My Project

I found an incredible resource to assist in science instruction at my school! It is an online platform which allows students to work with self-directed activities aligned to our state standards while other students can receive individual attention from the teacher. Combined with our district materials and a culture of scientific discovery, I believe that it will make a profound difference in the students of this school to acquire the scientific knowledge that will benefit them.

According to a year-long independent study by an educational research firm, students who use USATestprep gain up to a full year's growth in academic performance.

USATestprep provides an effective and comprehensive online solution for students to master state and national standards. Their resources are aligned to the most recent Common Core State Standards and track progress for each student at the standard level. USATestprep provides thousands of questions aligned specifically to this state's standards. Teachers at my school will also have the ability to create an unlimited number of assessments quickly and easily. These teachers can quickly track student progress and identify standards in which the most additional work is needed. USATestprep also provides teachers with access to thousands of printable lessons that can be used anywhere and at anytime throughout the school year.

Teachers in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade would have access to this program for their students. They can use it in multiple ways to assist their students in gaining science knowledge throughout the school year.
