My Students

Our school is a Title I school trying to provide the always-changing resources needed to coordinate with the current educational standards which also change often.

I am fortunate enough to be teaching a great group of sixth graders.

This group of students come from a small, rural school that houses approximately two hundred and forty junior and senior high school students, of which most of the students come from low-income and low socioeconomic status homes. Our school struggles to provide funding for educational needs, let alone extracurricular activities.

My students are high-energy and have the ability to design and create wonderful things with their academic successes. One obstacle they face is not having the resources needed to support their creativity. Teachers in our district work hard to think "outside the box" to find ways to meet the students' needs the best we can, but the financial needs are greater than most teachers can provide.

My Project

In 1957, the turbulent events surrounding the Little Rock 9/Little Rock Crisis made Arkansas's tiny piece of the world the focus of the government, media, and individuals around the world. Our class recently began a unit on Civil Rights. Being from central Arkansas, my students have a unique opportunity to study the past by planning a field trip to the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site so that they can better understand the country's past.

My students, need a smart television, and wall mount in order to use our Google Chromecast to collaborate ideas as we learn about our past and present, and create a plan for protecting the civil rights of future citizens,

Students will have the opportunity to research past and present civil rights issues, collect civil rights-inspired images and quotes, add music, and compile information into a visual arts multi-media presentation that will be shared via a Google Chromecast to the classroom's smart television.
