Help me give my students engaging geography and social studies materials to bring this underappreciated subject to life.
Have you ever had to complete a project, assignment, or activity and not had the materials you need? It's pretty difficult to fulfill requirements when you don't have access to adequate resources. Have you ever been interested in a topic or content area without the ability to get information about it? It's pretty difficult to get excited about a topic you don't know anything about. I can't imagine being in this situation and I don't want my students to have to learn like this either.
I teach Math, Writing, and Social Studies to forty eight lively fourth graders at an inner city school in Massachusetts where over 85% of our students are labeled as 'High Needs'.
My students are interested in a variety of topics and content areas, and I am constantly looking for ways to expand those interests and break misconceptions. My students are regularly excited to learn about new concepts and love diving in to research and new information. I am tasked with finding new ways to generate excitement and enthusiasm about each of these topics.
The only resources we currently have for Social Studies in our class are a half of a class set of two different text books and maps for the students to use at their desks that are fifteen years old and falling apart. I love teaching Social Studies and I want my students to feel that same love and appreciation for the subject as I do.
Having high quality texts, resources, and activities will make Social Studies come alive in my classroom and bring a level of engagement that is currently missing.
My students are learning about the unique, historical, and amazing geography of our country; I would love for them to have access to materials that match our content!
