GROWING YOUNG MINDS

As an educator, my mission is to motivate, engage, and empower my students to realize, that even though they struggle in some areas, they all have the capacity to do great things.

THEMED PROJECT BASED LEARNING APPROACH

The Themed Project-Based Learning Approach (TPBLA) is a program I created to teach my developing readers by providing them access to the curriculum and their IEP/MTSS goals in an authentic, fun, and unique manner. The projects center on a high-interest theme and are created in deliberate conjunction with student learning targets. This technique has significantly enhanced my students’ engagement; thereby allowing them to progress in their reading goals and increase their ability to delve deeply into a topic, think critically, and effectively communicate.
