Here I Am: My Brain Is Open!

Seacrest Country Day School - Lower School

The brilliant mathematician Paul Erdos approached all mathematical work with this mantra, “Here I am: my brain is open.” One of the best ways of helping young children become more present with brains open to understanding connections between mathematical problem solving and real-life situations is through literature. Seacrest endeavors to create a math literature collection to support mathematicians from Preschool through Fifth Grade.

How to conduct a Mock Trial!

Lely High

As a teacher in the Criminal Justice Academy at Lely High School, I teach about our court system and trial process. I also coach our competitive Mock Trial Team. To further deepen students' knowledge about the courts and the roles of the participants in a trial, I conduct Mock Trials using students to fill the roles of court officials. Students perform their roles using the techniques they learned in our criminal justice class. The impact of Mock Trials on our class is measured by successfully attaining the following objectives:
To promote greater understanding of and appreciation for the law, court procedures, and the judicial system.
To improve basic life skills, such as critical thinking, reading, speaking, and advocacy.
To improve communication and cooperation among students, teachers, legal professionals, and citizens.
To heighten appreciation for the principle of equal justice for all.
To promote an awareness of current legal issues.
To promote the exchange of ideas among students from throughout the state of Florida.

Career and Technical Education: Nurses Needed; Construction Calling; More Machinists Please!

Immokalee Technical College

In order for students to complete Career and Technical Education programs and join the Southwest Florida skilled labor workforce, they must earn program-specific scores on adult basic education tests. Many students struggle to pass these tests, even with current materials, including computer-aided learning, because English is not their first language. My goal is to have as many different resources as possible to help teach English language arts concepts to students. By using a variety of classroom materials, I hope to assist my students not only in entering and completing their career programs, but also help them gain stronger English language skills to navigate daily life. The overall goal is to help adult students and our community by teaching important language communication concepts in our ever-growing population. Ultimately, the students will use the skills in their workplaces and in our community in general.
