S. L. Mason Teacher Transforms Classroom into an Emergency Room

Third grade teacher, Mrs. Murray used a spare classroom and transformed it into an emergency room. During reading, students used the “Emergency room” to diagnose a fable by determining the moral and/or lesson of the story and provide the symptoms or “text evidence” to confirm their diagnosis. During Math, students used the “Emergency room” to read a word problem and write a prescription for the patient. The students had to accurately determine if they were to add or subtract, then pick a math strategy to answer the equation.
