Untangling our Messy World
My students need binders so that they can learn how to organize all of their work.
Organization is key to success in school. Help us become better organized so that we can show our true academic abilities! Students struggle in math already being disorganized simply adds to this struggle.
My students are high school students that come from a low income community.
In most instances they simply do not have the money to purchase essential school supplies such as binders. These students are truly hard working and motivated, they are proud of their school and look forward to all the things that a quality education provides. However, without necessary supplies it becomes increasingly challenging to keep up in classes that require students to take notes and study. This is especially true when our students do not have a place to keep track of all of their hard work.
Binders will help change our students' lives for the better by teaching them how to plan and organize for their current classes as well as preparing them for college. Without simple materials such as binders, our students will not understand the importance of organizing their work. The activity that we will be able to do is ongoing. Most importantly students will use these binders to organize their notes, of which they will then learn how to study from their notes. Secondly, it will encourage them to keep better track of their work so that it can be turned in, thus improving their grades. Students will be asked to annotate their notes on a daily basis to promote better understanding of the current material.
Overall, this will teach our students essential skills that can be used throughout their lives.
Immediately, binders will help improve their grades. In the very near future, these resources will teach them how to be better students so that they are prepared for college. Thus, promoting success in high school and college.
