Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 150

Games!  Activities!  Fun!   And...learning.  This was so successful, kids were begging for more vocab games.  

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

To improve grammar and usage scores on FSA and Florida Writes through games, activities and competitions. Students are scoring low across the County and nation. 

 

What will be done with my students

Workbooks will help in creating exciting, hands on lesson plans wherein grammar/usage is fun and its importance celebrated and shared. Students can collaborate or work independently to compete in a grammar project contest and game show! 

 

Benefits to my students

Higher test scores in the conventions section(s) of testing not only FSA but ACT and SAT. Improved writing overall. 

 

Describe the Students

Except for 1 class, my classes are all ESE blended with traditional students, many who are low readers. Students are 10th and 11th graders.  

 

Budget Narrative

Covers training materials that will lead up to GrammarBowl 2016 with incentives and prizes. Without these materials, the unit will be "flat". Students will compete across their grades and within the periods.
