Tell us what you think!

To complete the 2012 POW goal, 170 whiteboards (4'x8') will be cut into 6,800 student boards (9"x12").  Teachers receiving whiteboards who choose not to use them will be encouraged to "gift" them to a colleague.  Surely at least one teacher in your High School could use a class set of whiteboards . . .

We want to know what you think of this project!  So chime in if you like!

Thank you so much for the whiteboards. They were totally unexpected, but a really pleasant surprise! I’ve been trying to think of ways to have my younger (Physical Science and Physics I) students do more interactive work, and they will come in really handy. I’ve had my AP students collaborate with big drawing pads and post solutions around the walls, but I’ve never been able to do that for the other classes due to lack of wall space. This will really fill that gap.

Thanks for thinking of us- this made my day

Thank you so much! I have been wanting to get whiteboards for several years but didn't have the funds. It was a wonderful surprise and I am very excited to use them in class this year. My classes are all very large this year and I think this will really help me engage more of my students and check on their progress.

My chem kids used them the figure density today. I am working on some easels for some additional 2X4 white boards this weekend. I think this is a great strategy for a highly engaged classroom! Thanks from all of us.

I just received the box of whiteboards from your program. What an unexpected and welcome surprise! I teach Physics at Burns Flat-Dill City Public Schools, and I also teach HS math and Chemistry. I have used individual whiteboards many times in my Algebra 1 class, but those particular boards have a permanent 1 cm graph grid on them so they are not ideal for drawing pictorial representations. This whiteboard project was a great idea, and I applaud NWOSU for coming up with it and bringing it to fruition. Funding is really tight in public schools, so any resource we can receive is greatly appreciated. Thanks again – I promise to put the boards to good use.

I really like having the whiteboards for class use. I am able to have the students work example problems and show me quickly. The students are enjoying using them. I am using the whiteboards with my physics class and with my physical science classes. However, to have a complete class set, I need 6 more whiteboards.
