My Students

I am a third-year teacher at this school. Our students live in a city, and our school is in a small neighborhood that is near the ocean. There is a large immigrant population. In the school,​ the students get acclimated with the English language and literature about all different kinds of places and topics. They also use different modes to explore different subject matters in all areas.

My students are book-loving, avid readers and enthusiastic learners.

Students in my class are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative. With a big English language learner presence, having different tools to manipulate, books, and other materials helps all learners have access to the curriculum.

My Project

When students discover a book they like they may want to read another similar to it, and better yet if it's in a series they will be more likely to read the next one. Students can make connections bewteen books and also between authors style of writing. As they read several books by a certain author they get to dive in and try to imagine what the author's intention was for writing a series.

It's also important that there is a range of genres within different series.

Students can sample different types of series by a range of authors and get to decide what interests them.
