My Students

As a public school in a city environment, we have students with many diverse backgrounds and upbringings, with approximately 30 different languages spoken. Like many 14 year olds, they are self conscious of how others view them.

These students thrive in an environment that is hands-on and/ or requires the use of technology.

The level of engagement and understanding has been amazing. Once they conquer the fear of failure, they show that they can do many amazing things. Seeing their confidence grow has inspired them to become better learners and has also made me a better teacher.

My Project

Most students are very shy when it comes to raising their hand and volunteering answers in class. This will lead to only the confident and knowledgeable students participating in class. The hand held dry erase boards force every students to show what they know or what they need assistance with, without the fear of embarrassment.

In the past I have been using a photo copied coordinate plane and placing it in a sheet protector to use as dry erase boards in order to get full participation.

These often fall apart and we end up not having enough for a class set. They are also difficult to use when not sitting down.

By receiving these hand held dry erase boards, students can do work at their seat or while doing a math lab outside of their work area. The durability of a real dry erase board will also save me much more time because I will not have to recreate the ones I am currently using.
