My students must keep up with the latest advancements in education to spark an interest in reading, but more importantly my students need to LEARN how to read. I am in an inner-city high school in Cincinnati where the average reading level THROUGHOUT Middle School is 2nd grade. A colleague and myself created and wrote a Reading program specifically for OUR students. We use a combination of reading strategies, Orton-Gillingham and much more! In the past three years we have seen grade levels go up at the least 2 grade levels! Education is changing every single day, and so are the interest of my students, through our program we incorporate technology specifically to each individual student. I have set up in my classroom the Apple TV to have live interaction with the students, but unfortunately my iPad I have been using has gone caput. They love the one on one and interactive possibilities with using the iPad and would love to continue this into next year! The headphones are vital to the success of the students through the program because being at different levels allows for some level of privacy and lessens embarrassment for those students, and allows them to give their complete focus to their success.
