Jill Butts UL Middle School – Awarded Mini-Grant from The Patton College of Education

Jill Butts | Union Local Middle School | 6th grade math

Through the Patton College Mentor Teacher Mini-Grant, I was able to purchase a classroom set of individual dry erase boards, markers, and erasers. I have been using these as a method of formative assessment. I can quickly assess which students have mastered the topic and which students are struggling and need more help. The students also enjoy using them; they are more fun than paper and pencil! At Union Local, we are a 1:1 Chromebook school, but dry erase boards are a nice alternative to reaching other learning styles. Dry erase boards keep every student engaged in every lesson. They foster collaboration and encourage participation. The boards motivate students who normally would be too afraid to speak up in class to become involved and share their thoughts. One of the best parts of using dry erase boards is that mistakes are easily wiped away. Students can erase and correct answers—no dwelling on past mistakes!

The use of dry erase boards proves to be an effective teaching tool for the Ohio teacher candidates and professional interns, because they can easily assess their lesson delivery and can adjust their teaching on the spot if necessary. This is vital to a new teacher because, as veteran teachers know, lessons don’t always go as we thought they would! This helps the professional intern learn the importance of being flexible. Dry erase boards also allow the teachers to provide immediate feedback to students, which is another important facet of teaching.

Thank you Ohio University Patton College of Education for this wonderful learning opportunity for the students of Union Local Middle School.
