Mr. Hurty’s Classroom Edit display name

  • Edna Brewer Middle School
  • Oakland, CA
  • More than three‑quarters of students from low‑income households

These students are enrolled in a middle school reading intervention program. We were inspired by the Chevron Classroom Challenge to raise the stakes for our Speaking Truth to Power unit and incorporate a video presentation that will accompany each student's oral presentation. Because these students commit two periods each day to their English Language Arts studies, they give up an elective course in favor of building power as readers and writers. One of the foundational skills that helps students with comprehension and fluency is oral communication. Our Speaking Truth to Power unit will focus on helping students develop a powerful academic vocabulary, and put that vocabulary to work in both their oral presentation and in an accompanying video project that will expand on a topic of their choosing.
