My Students are amazing, funny, and hard working. I teach mixed classes in which I have honors and academaic students in class together. I also teach classes that are mixed grade levels. This helps them to be tolerant of each other. They all get along and work well together even though they may be in a different grade or different academic level.
My students really enjoy music, showing me video's to use in class, and collaborating with each other to have engaging conversations even though they never agree on things.
I use music frequently in class to engage students learning. I always try to incorporate a song that fits the lesson or topic I'm covering. Everyone loves music and when you bring that into the classroom it just enhances the topic or subject matter. I also have this thing called "Fun Song Friday" so every Friday for the first 10 minutes of class I allow students to be the DJ and select music that relates to any topic we have covered that week. This really helps students creativity and critial thinking. It also shows their knowledge of a topic and what they have learned.
