APPLe teacher, Treenise Moore, wins $1000.00 to purchase supplies for her “Anchors Away” project.
by Treenise Moore
This year, Ms. Moore’s students are benefiting from supplies purchased with funding granted by the Rubicon Endowment through the Ascension Fund.
Funds were used to purchase supplies to create, organize, and store anchor charts. Anchor charts make thinking visible by recording and visually organizing important content. Anchor charts makes it easy to keep relevant and current learning accessible to students to remind them of prior learning and to enable them to make connections as new learning happens.
Ms. Moore said, “Students at APPLe use an online curriculum called Edgenuity. I try to anticipate when students will have difficulty understanding a concept. That way, I’m prepared to model how to select and use the appropriate anchor chart to visually organize the learning. After a while, students are able to go to the storage racks and select their own anchor charts. We instantly see an increase in their Edgenuity quiz scores.”
The nonprofit Ascension Fund was founded by the Gonzales Rotary Club in 1991 to provide grants for innovative ideas and programs in Ascension.
