My Students

I love to read but many of my students have not found that passion, and on our campus we have a lot of students that are reading below grade level. I will help by incorporating reading into my elective robotics and habitat classes. I have the hook,but I need the magazines to reel them in to reading.

Our school is a public Title 1 middle school in Texas.

My classes are Habitat and Robotics. In Habitat class, the students learn about environmental and biological sciences through hands-on learning activities and they maintain and harvest our school gardens. In Robotics, the students learn about engineering and programming while developing communication, time management, and problem solving skills. My classes have students in 6th-8th grade and they may be regular, gifted or special education students.

My Project

Many students on our campus are struggling with reading but are very successful in either my robotics or habitat classes. I would like to have the weekly reader Current Science magazine to use as a classroom resource in both of my classes. I already have students hooked on my subjects, now all I need is on topic interesting reading material to inspire all my students to read. The magazines will be incorporated into our lessons and also used for enrichment of both classes.

Our students need to improve in reading.

If I have the resources, like the Weekly Reader Current Science Magazine, on hand to incorporate in my classes, then I can help our core teachers with our campus wide effort to improve our students' abilities to read.
