My Students

My students are sixth graders, attending an intermediate school, in Connecticut. They come from all areas of town and are mostly from an urban setting. Most of our students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. In our district, funding is extremely limited, and access to resources are almost non-existent. I want my classroom to be a place where my students can comfortably learn, in a safe and exciting environment, but I also want to give them every opportunity possible to help them succeed.

My Project

Using storyboarding, students will demonstrate their learning in both social studies and ELA. With these Chromebooks, students will be able to create animated comic strips to tell our social studies stories. For example, students can write code for an Ancient Mesopotamian character to show life in the Fertile Crescent. They can create a comic as a pharaoh in Ancient Egypt supervising the building of pyramids.

I love giving my students the opportunity to creatively and artistically show what they've learned.

In addition to social studies topics, students will be able to take a stand on a social justice topic. Applying themes they've studied and are passionate about, these Chrome books will give the students a platform to voice their opinions and create a call to action for their peers and the world. From bullying prevention and protecting the environment to equality and acceptance, the possibilities are limitless for students to express themselves.

Thank you for considering our project!
