Ms. Makay from Miami FL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Supreme Civics

My students need a motivational reminder of where they stand as far as mastery of the Civics benchmarks. These charts and stickers will help them keep motivated in Civics class.

My Students

My students are non-native speakers who are required to pass a comprehensive Civics exam at the end of the year. They struggle with vocabulary and content mastery. They also struggle with maintaining motivation throughout the year.

My students come from households where little English is spoken and parents are not engaged in student achievement.

My students need daily visual reminders on how well they are doing.My students also thrive on competition among their peers and they seem to do better when they can see what their ranking is among the other students.

My Project

We will use these charts and stickers to give students a daily reminder of their content mastery. Each teacher will have students chart their progress and when they master a benchmark with will receive a SUPREME sticker.(Which they LOVE). Our students need to know where they stand, what they need to do to master a benchmark and a reward when they achieve content mastery in that benchmark. They need the motivation to do this and the coolest thing for them are SUPREME stickers. They love these stickers and will work hard to get them. They will be able to compete with their classmates and we believe that this will help them gain mastery in areas that they are weakest.
