My Students

I teach social studies to 9th graders in a high-poverty neighborhood.

Many of my students are below-grade-level.

The school where I teach is a diverse public high school: 23% of students are African American, 19% Hispanic, 16% Asian, 2% Native American, and 36% Caucasian.

Many of my students struggle with challenges outside of school. Over 70% of our students are below the poverty line. Many students are in the foster care system or are homeless. Many are recent immigrants learning English as a second language. I have amazing students who use their diversity and life experiences to their advantage.

My Project

I would like to improve my ability to teach financial literacy by incorporating current events, articles, and economic news from the New York Times into my history classes. I would like to bring more economic and financial literacy into my world history class.

A subscription to the New York Times will give access to professional development.

I can access the most current articles and historical articles to write lesson plans to teach financial literacy. I access charts, graphs, images, video, and text.

I am excited to bring in the world, national, and local news into my classroom. This subscription to New York Times will allow me to improve my ability to teach financial literacy and economics to my students. I will use the information learned to also improve my ability to teach financial literacy vocabulary. I would like a subscription to Quizlet and Flocabulary to improve my ability to teach financial literacy vocabulary.
