Teacher Notes

In 1973 I was asked to teach a lesson in a television studio for a Career Education series. Not too far from our school was a huge housing project under construction (Starrett City).  I decided to focus on that building project. I enlisted the Art teacher to help the students create a model of the 46 buildings.  I had the Math and Science teachers  do lessons on the construction and engineering features. The Language Arts teacher helped the students develop good questions for the speakers I had invited to talk with the students.  The speakers including the project manager, several construction supervisors and an architect.  The lesson went extremely well and it was a good way to involve many different subject areas.  The Spanish classes helped translate our project for spanish-speaking people

(I wish to thank you for all of the work which you did in preparing the youngsters of Class 8-A to participate in the televised lesson which you taught at Station WNYE Channel 25 TV...from Principal)

(Three years later I received this from a former student) “Hi, I just had to write! The most fascinating thing just happened.  I was sitting on the couch watching cable television when a familiar face came on the screen. It was yours! , you haven’t changed in the least bit.”

Hero Project - daughter's eighth grade SS & English teachers worked together on this project.  Students had to choose an American Hero.  In SS class they had to do the research and then give an oral presentation.  The actual report was done in the English class.

Whatever novel they were reading in English class was what they were studying in Social Studies.

One day I walked into classroom and found a window with a bullet hole in it.  I found the bullet lodged in a wall in the room.  I put a sign on the window:  Trace the trajectory of the bullet.  I had the Math & Science teacher help me determine where the bullet was fired from.
