Classroom Unity Day Lesson
Acceptance, inclusion and kindness are year-round messages at Edmund W. Miles Middle School, but those community building traits were particularly emphasized on Oct. 21 when the school celebrated Unity Day.

October marks National Bully Prevention Month, an initiative of the PACER Center, and the middle school participates every year. Social worker Beatriz Offitto said that Unity Day is the centerpiece of this awareness campaign to show that the school community stands together against bullying. Students and staff were encouraged to wear orange to show their support.

Throughout the week of Oct. 19-23, several related topics were addressed in advisory periods including bullying, digital media and the brain, on-screen diversity and the science of character. Because students are connected digitally in many ways, including social media, the impacts of cyberbullying were also discussed.   

Amityville Teachers Use Technology to Connect to All Learners

A wealth of digital resources allows students and teachers in Amityville to stay connected as they navigate the new educational environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

With the district’s hybrid learning model, students are split into two cohorts, with each group attending school every other day. The other days students learn from home using their Chromebooks, and many have also chosen to participate in remote-only instruction. Amityville uses Google’s G Suite for Education learning platform, where teachers can post assignments and students can submit their work. Classes are livestreamed through Google Meet.

Edmund W. Miles Middle School math teacher David Takseraas said SMART Learning Suite allows him to provide his eighth graders with digital worksheets to complete algebraic equations. He can view any student’s work on his computer and can also share anyone’s screen with the rest of the class to show examples of good work. 

Amityville Memorial High School teacher Christina Aversano recently introduced students in her Advanced Placement environmental science class to the electronic version of their textbook. Not only does it contain all pages of the book, but there are also several interactive tools including tutorial videos and review flashcards. Students can even make their own custom flashcards as a study aid.

Ms. Aversano said that by having both a hard copy book and electronic version, students can choose the way that best meets their individual learning needs.

High school science department Chairwoman Christine Garofano uses cK-12 to support the curriculum, with content aligned to the Next Generation Learning Standards in science. One of the features is PLIX, an interactive tool in which students can explore concepts at their own pace, using virtual manipulation and simulation. She said this is an excellent resource for a “do now” activity or to assess her students’ knowledge of a topic.

Students in Jack Zider’s ninth grade global history classes recently analyzed the qualities of good leaders based on documents he shared with them through G Suite. They compared leaders from ancient civilizations with world leaders today. Students then used the Jamboard app to post virtual sticky notes, which in-person and remote students could view on their Chromebook screens.

As a culminating assignment, Mr. Zider’s students had to pick the five personality traits that they feel best define a leader, and pick a past or present leader who embodies each trait, then create an infographic in Jamboard.

Eighth graders were hard at work on their first challenge of the year in Natasha Lim’s STEAM class at Edmund W. Miles Middle School on Sept. 21. After doing research on structural engineering, each student then had to build a tower at least 18 inches tall that could support the weight of a baseball. Their only supplies were newspapers and tape. They learned about different engineering principles and the process followed by professional engineers.
