My Students

I have an amazing group of 4th graders. They come into my classroom every day, eager to learn, ready to take on new and challenging tasks, and excited for what is in store.

My fabulous 4th graders come to school each and every day excited to research topics of interest based on their own uniqueness.

These eager students come from a diverse group of cultural, economic, and academic backgrounds. We work in a class community where most households have two working parents.

My Project

In an upcoming literacy unit, my fourth graders will be asked: "How does one's perspective influence his or her opinion?". The focus will be on building background knowledge about the Revolutionary War and the different perspective of colonists.

These books will help students develop an understanding of the significant ideas and values at the heart of the American Revolution, what drove the colonists to seek independence, and how the conflict between England and the colonists ultimately influenced change in our country.

Throughout our unit of study, students will write opinion pieces from the patriot and loyalist perspectives, outlining reasons colonists should join the patriot and loyalist cause. As a culminating activity, students will synthesize what they have learned and discuss whether they would have supported the American Revolution if they had lived during colonial times.
