Capstone Project Title
Susan L. Manikowski
The research question addressed in this project was, what instructional strategies can I employ with my high school students of poverty to better engage them in learning mathematics? It documents one teacher’s creation of a presentation designed for high school mathematics teachers who are looking for strategies to engage their students in the classroom. The presentation discusses the barriers of learning for students of poverty and gives several suggestions for teachers to help students overcome these barriers. The presentation also discusses six teaching strategies and gives a sample lesson plan of each strategy in a high school classroom setting. The six strategies are: 1) Cooperative Learning; 2) Jigsaw Learning; 3) Card Sorts; 4) Walk-Arounds; 5) Culturally-Relevant Lessons; 6) Intentional Vocabulary Instruction
