Friendship Academy of Engineering and Technology is a Middle/ High transformation school in Baltimore City that open in 2008.
F.A.E.T Serves students from all over the city in grades 6 th - 12 th
F.A.E.T primary objective is to develop college ready students and prepare them for careers in:
The idea behind a transformation school like Friendship Academy of Engineering and Technology is to limit the number of transitions that students make in their academic careers.
Students in a comfortable school culture
Students who are exciting about learning
This is the reason why this presentation will be centered around F.A.E.T’s Middle School population and trends.
If F.A.E.T wants to have a successful high school then it must start with a successful middle school students.
In its first two full years in the Baltimore City Public School System F.A.E.T has narrowly missed its own Annual Measureable Objective and the Annual Yearly Process score set by Maryland State of Education.
2010 Math AMO-71.4.% / 2010 Score- 59.9%
2010 Reading AMO- 80.9% / 2010 Score- 72.9%
2010 M.S.A. Break down for Math
2010 M.S.A. Break down for Reading
My goal as a the school 6 th & 7 th grade Social Studies teacher is to assist and reinforce the techniques and skills that my students have learned in their Math and English class in order to help F.A.E.T meet our A.Y.P.
March of 2011, the Middle School students at F.A.E.T. will meet or exceed the Annual Measureable Objective of 81.8% in Reading and 71.4% in Math set for us by the Maryland State of Education in order to reach A.Y.P
BUT HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THIS GOAL????
The answer is simple. Social Networks
If educators begin integrate the use of social networks not only will take a interest in their tested subjects, but they will also be excited about the M.S.A. and about doing well on them.
Educators need to begin to incorporate social networks into their curriculum and test prep.
Students consistently use them and are comfortable with.
Their sites are updated with newer Web 2.0 technologies
Teachers can share and link variety of Web 2.0 to a class social network page
Students will have constant communication with Peers and Teachers.
