My students need a whiteboard, which can help them get used to taking notes and being part of a more academic classroom.
We have five core values that we hope to foster over the course of a scholar's time in the school. These values are Advocacy, Stewardship, Success and Failure, Intellect and Curiosity, and Respect. 6th graders work towards these values everyday.
The 6th graders in my Ancient World History classroom are learning what it means to be part of a community, and where their identity fits into the community.
We emphasize strengths of the individual in contributing to the larger society.
6th graders hold themselves to high standards and don't want to be looked down on or babied. They work hard and are not afraid to keep it real. They try to foster a community in their Social Studies classroom by inviting others to speak and getting to know one another through discussions. 6th graders are curious and never back down from asking questions. They are committed to learning Social Studies and finding relevance to their own lives.
Some information about our school: We are a 6-12, non-screened NYC public community school. Many of our students qualify for free-and-reduced-priced lunch. For many of our students, this is their first time learning Social Studies in a specific period of their week.
Unfortunately, this year my classroom does not have a whiteboard. In order to teach my 6th grade students how to take notes and about key phrases, they need to have access to a whiteboard.
Students need a text-rich environment to learn best.
I believe my students having a whiteboard in their classroom will benefit them greatly. With a whiteboard, I will be able to write down key words and definitions for my students in what may be their first year of social studies. Many NYC public school students do not take social studies until 6th grade.
I have also requested a globe, as I believe this is a staple of any social studies classroom.
