I am a Social Studies Teacher at John P. Altgeld Elementary School for 7th and 8th grade students. John P. Altgeld is an inner-city Chicago Public School with over 800 African-American K-8th grade students, the majority of whom are at risk of school failure. In order to reduce our student risk factors and promote student achievement and social success I am requesting Art Supplies to implement Social Studies Projects. On January 16, 2006 my classes will start on The Constitution Unit. The students will create projects throughout the Unit. They will create a United States Constitution boardgame where questions are taken from the textbook, they will create a collage that depict Chicagoans excercising the rights, duties and/or responsibilities of their citizenship, and they will create an ABC book of the U S Constitution. I teach two eighth grade classes and three seventh grade classes with a total of approximately 150 students. The supplies that I need are markers, colored pencils, crayons, water paint, clay, construction paper, Post-it Chart paper and tiles or gravel. This will allow me to offer the students an expanded menu of learning opportunities which will support and encourage their efforts to improve student achievement.
