Hooray! This project is fully funded
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district in Chicago and former student of this district, I understand that my students are faced with challenges both inside and outside of the classroom. Despite those many challenges, the mathematicians that I enlighten are motivated problem solvers, curious about the world around us and destined for success.
My students are amazing middle schoolers stuck somewhere between cool and fabulous.
Many of my students are bilingual with English being their second language. They enjoy mathematics, and they are quickly learning the importance of teaching others how to fish instead of simply giving fish to our peers.
Just like most teenagers, my students love technology and socialization, and I want to use their interests to create a more efficient learning environment that fosters collaborative learning, open communication, developing their skills with technology and access to class materials that promote an inclusive class environment.
My students need to learn about financial literacy. To create an engaging environment where students are comfortable and actively learning about money management skills. Retention rates are best when students are having fun and board games always grasp anyone's attention. The games that will become apart of our class are aimed at money management skills.
Money management skills are lifelong skills that everyone will undoubtedly benefit from.
In addition to learning finance skills they will also benefit from communication and problem solving skills. In a fun and entertaining way they will embrace the many financial challenges life has to throw your way. What better way to learn how to turn lemons into lemonade than gathering around a board game with friends.
