Session 2005-025 with Rochester School for the Deaf

Application

The School

School Name Rochester School for the Deaf
School Homepage www.rsdeaf.org
Location Rochester New York, USA
Community Students transported from various local districts and districts in Southwestern NY; residential component during the regular school year
Type Private, state-supported

The Class

Subjects Taught summer school - all; school year - science
Grades Taught I teach 5th during summer school, however the school is servicing children preschool-8th grade for the summer
Number of Students 7-15 - unsure how many would like to attend; will be determined when date and time are established

The Project

Project Title (none at this time)
Insects To Study I would like to use smaller specimens, if possible - flea and 2 or 3 others. My students are still investigating.
Project Description Summer school classes are quite small. This would allow me to involve more of the students in attendance and hopefully make the session more 'intimate'. I would like to invite students of varying ages to the session; the race, gender and ethnicity would vary depending on the date and time of the experiment. (I could forward this information when it is available.) I am currently working on the science curriculum committee at our school. I am hoping that, if your program continues, we will be able to make use of it in other classes and areas during the school year. I also network with other teachers from public and private programs in my area. I would certainly share my experience with them.
