My Students

I teach the world's next Angelou, Patterson, Russell, Meyer and Pastis. They just don't know it yet! I know that if I raise prolific readers they will become prolific writers! Along with the other staff, I work to create a nurturing and encouraging environment which teaches students to become critical and creative thinkers, active problem solvers, effective communicators, and contributing citizens. One of our school's goals is for 8th graders to pass the reading and writing SOLs or have them reach grade level.

My Project

In an effort to bring real world application English concepts of drawing conclusions, inferring and problem-solving to the classroom, I would like to do a cross-curricula crime scene activity. The CSI kits from Frey will allow the students to work collaboratively as they work to solve the cases. My students get to do mini labs in their science class, but since their end of the year test covers three years of instruction, doing hands-on activities in English class will allow the concepts that are covered cross-curricula to be enforced.

Students will done magnifying glasses, read reports, collect clues and conduct research to find the culprit of their case.

Talk about a set of kids running to English class! When teaching middle school students it is important to get student buy-in. The level of student engagement will be second to none.
