My Students

Ever wanted to explore the ocean, or travel around the world, or even wonder if you could travel to the center of the earth? With the help of author, Jules Verne, students can do all of these things and read some classic literature with great vocabulary.

My students are identified gifted and talented in a school that is 50% impoverished.

Many of my students have never traveled outside of our small town, so understanding the world and all of it's wonders does not happen easily. Their quest for knowledge is something I admire and want to foster!! They want to explore and learn everything there is in all areas!

My Project

The three novels by Jules Verne will introduce my students to some classic literature, science fiction, and allow them to explore the world without ever leaving our town. They will be introduced to great vocabulary, science terms and questions to tweak their curiosity more as they explore the world around them.

My students need these novels to enhance their learning and expand their literature knowledge and vocabulary.

Without these novels, the students study of explorations will be incomplete. Please help my students become great explorers of the world through classic literature!
