Virtual Classroom

My Students

We are a Title I school in inner-city Philadelphia, and our students receive free breakfast and lunch. They are faced with many challenges, but they are determined to succeed. We are conducting classes 100% online this fall, and as a result I have need of materials to provide distance learning for my 8th graders that truly feels and acts like school. My students would benefit from my home classroom to be set up similarly to the real one.

My Project

My students will retain a sense of familiarity with the classroom environment. Use of the whiteboard will bring student attention to the focal point of the writing or reading lesson, make objectives clear,

Virtual learning is a foreign format, and I believe that some familiar items being used by their teacher to present information, will help them feel more at ease while advancing their reading and writing skills.

The ability to rely on a consistent "classroom" environment will aid in this transition to a semester (or more) of distance learning
