Transcript of TOOLKIT

TOOLKIT
BY SATENIK GRIGORYAN
This projector is used daily, especially during Algebra and Geometry class. I use this projector to visually demonstrate how math problems are solved, review problems that students are struggling with, visually demonstrate assignments, and to show documentaries/video clips (from my laptop) for students in my science and business classes.
ELMO

Our campus is very small, but fortunately, we have benches with umbrellas outside in the inner quad. Sometimes I teach multiple subjects in one period and due to this setting the classroom becomes very loud. Students, especially those who are easily distracted, are not able to concentrate on their assignments so I send these students out with my paraprofessional to complete their independent assignments. It is always a success.
BLUE BENCH
Many of my students are very hands on and participate more when given the opportunity to write down answers on the mini white board. The mini board makes participating in classroom activities more fun and less threatening for students who are shy. For example, during math class, I ask students a question and students respond by writing it on the mini board. Then, they raise the boards and I scan around to see if students are on the right track or if I need to re-teach a topic.
MINI WHITE BOARD
Our science textbooks are very difficult for our students. Many of our students are at 4th- 6th grade reading level (all students are assessed for their reading level during their orientation class) and feel very overwhelmed when asked to read high school level textbooks. I ordered science comic books (aligned with CA state standards) and read them with our students. It provides information through dialogues and pictures. Students enjoy these comic books because it is different, visually appealing, and provides continuous discussion about what was read (checking for understanding).
COMIC BOOK
Many of our students work best when listening to music while working independently. Unfortunately, I teach multiple subjects in one period. For example, I will be teaching a group of students while my paraprofessional is teaching another group of students, and there will be a group of students who are there for resource lab. I let students in resource lab listen to music on my headphones so they are able to work on their assignments and not distract the other students, or get distracted by them.
HEADPHONES
This method is great for visual learners. Students use pens and highlighters for a variety of reasons. Some use to highlight words/sentences that are important (I model this process in the beginning of the school year). Students use color pens for their notes sections in math. I believe it helps students understand more if they are able to differentiate words from numbers and shapes. I encourage them to use color pens so they don’t get overwhelmed.
HIGHLIGHTERS/COLOR PENS/PENCILS
Due to the nature of my classroom, teaching different subjects in one period, I provide puzzles and Siam Mandalay puzzles, made of wood (www.siammandalay.com) as rewards for students who complete their assignments on time. Many of my students are very hands on and they love these puzzles because it is interesting and challenging.
HANDS ON PUZZLES
(www.vocarro.com) : It is a great online voice-recording program for my business students. Students need to do an informative speech in front of their peers. I think it is an important skill for students to learn proper public/classroom skills and vocaroo records students' voice and plays it back. This gives students opportunities to practice their speeches on their own time and also lets them hear how he/she sounds likes when giving a speech. Students have realized that they need to practice more and be better prepared for their final speech in class. It is fun and more engaging than learning on his/her own at home.

COMPUTERS
There are six computers in our classroom and they are used daily for a variety of reasons. The use of computers is great for all kinds of learners. Students have the opportunity to improve their typing skills (essays), researching online (science projects), researching for jobs and filling out applications (business). Students have the option to re-watch video clips, previously shown in the classroom, on their own individual time (most clips have closed captioning provided). I also take this opportunity to teach my business students how to create power point presentations.

FOLDER ASSIGNMENTS
There are six individual boxes by the door. Students pick up their folders before class begins. The folders contain students’ completed work and their contracts. By the end of the period, students put their folders back in the boxes with their completed assignments. Then, I review their assignments and mark their contracts. This gives students opportunities to be responsible and organized with their work and also gives me opportunities to know if I need to re-teach a topic or move forward.
