2018 Fellowship winners:

Frank Manjang of Zaria Academy (Nigeria) won for a writing project. His idea, “Questioning the Question,” helps students with paragraph structure and logic by helping them contextualize–and imagine relevant connections to–the question they are asked to address in writing.

Sam Sebastien Kouabenan of Lycée Municipal de Tanda, Tanda (Ivory Coast) won for a project in French as a second (or third) language. Mr. Kouabenan engages the students in a competitive process, chiefly involving the skills of reading French out loud. The meta-cognitive aspect is that they see what elements of their performance are used in grading them compared to their peers.

Nicole Guyon of Community prep School, Providence, RI, won for a blended classroom innovation. Faced with the challenges of different abilities in an eighth grade algebra classroom, she has used techniques learned through FUSE training to group students and to best respond to different needs.

Neal Bogosian of Jacqueline M Walsh High School, RI, won for a project to teach a course in film and video. It is believed to be the only full term course of its kind in the state. The class will learn technical production, artistic values but also funding, publicity and distribution skills.

Karie Huttner, of Eastview Elementary School, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin won a Fellowship for an innovation involving mp3 recordings and Spanish students. She has 2nd grade students record stories, then the recordings are sent home with the kindergarten learners. These students, in the program called Cuentories, can listen and work on the material at home with their parents. Parents can listen at the same time with headphone-splitters.

Laura Ketcham, of Aventura City of Excellence School, Aventura, Florida, won a Fellowship for enriching her computer science curriculum. The computer class has a new content-rich format, based on Florida marine life, both plant and animal. Students work with various Web2.0 skills, including websites, and their work is especially innovative in combining math, science, English and history.
