My Students

My students are driven to understand the big topics of our world and want to change their communities for the better. I have never known such giving 7th graders. Their passion shows in all classroom conversations with a maturity present beyond their years. They just want to make the world better.

My students are kind, selfless world changers in motion.

Every day is full of hugs, high fives, jokes, and community. They take care of each other, write positive notes, and challenge all misconceptions of preteens placed on them. I can honestly say that the world is going to be a better place in their hands. Those are the young people that exist in my classroom.

My Project

I will be using novels with the same dystopian theme to challenge students to think of issues to solve in our current world. The main topics of this unit are mental health, current events, and historical connections to WWII. This unit is a precursor to the WWII unit they will complete in their 8th grade ELA curriculum.

Dystopia gives students an easy access point to introduce them to the complications of their current world.

This unit will be a quarter long and involve student choice in their reading and collaborative work when inquiring into similar themes between novels. Students will be using their novels to lead discussions and build the foundation of their Socratic seminar that asks the question: What problems are there in the world, and how can we solve them?
