By Stacey Burt
Grades 6–8

    Welcome to my 6th grade classroom at the Discovery School in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Serving gifted and high achievers, join me in exploring instructional differentiation through technology integration, authentic field and lab experiences, and extensions of practical applications for math and science concepts.

    Welcome to my 6th grade classroom at the Discovery School in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Serving gifted and high achievers, join me in exploring instructional differentiation through technology integration, authentic field and lab experiences, and extensions of practical applications for math and science concepts. Understand why is it critical to “keep it real” for this population by connecting knowledge to real world experiences.


    Peek inside room 26, and find helpful hints for classroom organization, journaling, creative seating, and opportunities for helping students pursue outside interests. Examine community resources for starting competitive math and robotic teams. Appreciate the value of journaling across the curriculum that makes learning fun and real for all students. In addition, get practical ideas for grant writing and grant opportunities to enhance your already engaging classroom.

    I hope you will join me often for postings and updates, and I look forward to another awesome year of ”keepin’ it real.”
