Building Fluency with Students

I heard the music coming from the classroom before I opened the door — Mozart’s cello concertos. Over a year had passed since I’d finished coaching this new eighth grade English teacher in a tough school; I was driving through the neighborhood and decided to drop in and see how Ms. K was faring. What I found on this freezing January morning was something good, something working as I had resolved to find in our schools this year.

Sample Unite: Genocide

Below is a unit that was created with my freshman community teachers. The team was comprised of one English teacher, one Social Studies teacher, and Me a Special Educator. Our team has been working together for three years now. This is the first unit that we were all able to collaborate with. The outcome has been quite strong for our students, both special needs and non-special needs.

Multiple Intelligence

Creating Learning Stations

Create Multiple Intelligence Learning Stations to discover students interactive sensory preference. Students alternate team tasks to manage their own self directed behavior in a core subject area, actively engaging visual, auditory, kinesthetic and analytical understanding.


Heart To Heart Game

Heart 2 Heart is the ultimate slumber party game for teen girls. Combining self awareness and teamwork, Heart 2 Heart provokes positive conversations and a safe environment for players to discover how everyone sees the world differently.

Find out which players are a green (logical thinker) and who is a blue (visual and intuitive) by finishing sentences such as “If I was stranded on an island, the one thing I would want is…” with answers such as “TV, my cell phone, a game, or a good book.”
