I teach only writing, and I try to incorporate technology as often as possible in my classroom. We usually write with iPads, but any time I ask students to take out their pencils, the hands go up. "I need a pencil." I will never refuse my students a pencil, even though I will likely not get that pencil back. Anything I can do to ease the burden of students' daily life contributes to their success. Sometimes a pencil is the only thing that my students need to start class, but other times the need runs deeper--a hug, a private conversation, or food. As educators, we must meet our students' needs in order to reach them academically. Even a pencil, something that I think nothing of in my daily life, has the ability to move students out of a learning gap and into success.
