My Students

Many of my students are the first in their family to make it to high school. All hope and strive to reach an even higher goal: graduate high school and attend college. My students attend an inner city high school, where more than 80% of them are at risk for dropping out and are economically disadvantaged.

Although my students arrive to my freshman English class with such disadvantages, they have a burning desire and need for learning about their world.

My Project

Having books in Spanish will allow students to develop their literacy skills in their first language, which according to linguist Stephen Krashen, second language acquisition is based on the proficiency of the student's native language. Which means: if students have a high proficiency in their native language, they can also acquire English at a high proficiency.

The books I selected are at different lexile levels and on a variety of topics so that bilingual students can enjoy not the best of both worlds, but the best of all worlds.

Literacy, knowing how to communicate by reading and writing, does not have a language. A love for reading should be provided to all students. At my school, over 45% of students are bilingual. By purchasing these books, they will develop their native and English language, as well as their love of books.
