My Students

I teach fifth grade at a suburban school in Oklahoma. My students come from various cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. They are a diverse and unique bunch. Each day, we strive to do the very best we can. We are a Title One school and a large percentage of our students qualify for free or reduced price lunch.

Our school is a learning community.

We try to meet the needs of every student and challenge them to set and reach goals each and everyday.

My Project

Science is a fun and engaging discipline. However, it is also difficult for some students. In science, students are asked to create and explain. There isn't always one "right" answer. They are asked to engage in higher-level thinking and creating. We are requesting a set of books that will help our students become more scientific thinkers. The "Uncovering Student Ideas in Science" series is a set of books that includes various assessment probes for students. These questions are not just simple "one-answer" questions. They require students to think and justify their thinking. To not just give the correct answer, but to give the "why" and the "how." In our standardized-test world, that is something that is not easily taught. These questions and activities will help us take our students science thinking to the next level.
