My Students

"Students will read if we give them the books, the time, and the enthusiastic encouragement to do so. If we make them wait for the one unit a year in which they are allowed to choose their own books and become readers, they may never read at all." -Donalyn Miller

My students love to be at school and are happy and eager to learn, however the neighborhood I teach in is low income and high risk.

Many parents are unable to help their children at home with school work. I really have to make sure that I am inspiring my students to strive to do well on their own. I love to find ways of keeping them motivated throughout the year and making sure they have a personal connection with what we are learning.

My Project

I recently read the book Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson and am so excited to read it with my students. I think this book is important enough that I want every student to have their own copy while we read it. This story lends itself so well to great discussions and we will be doing many reading responses and opinion writing about the story line.

When students have their own copy it allows them to connect to the story on a deeper level and it also allows students to back their opinions with evidence from the book.

Fever 1793 is also perfect as a link to our social studies curriculum after we study the American Revolution.
