Bilingual Dictionaries to the Rescue!

My students need bilingual dictionaries in order to build their English vocabulary, improve their reading and writing, and to use during testing.

My Students

My students are actively preparing for owning their own business in middle school! They have chosen to take the elective Principles of Business, Marketing, and Finance, which follows the NFTE (Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship) program. This is a high school credited program and is not an easy elective. That right there shows the absolute determination my students have to start their own business. Believe it or not, most of them will be the first in their family to even graduate from high school.

We are an urban school with low socioeconomic status, but that doesn't stop us from giving every minute we have to improving our grades, our goals, and our human capital.

Our school is socially and culturally diverse, which makes for a great global learning experience. We are an accredited International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme World School, we provide Dual Language classes to those whose primary language is not English, and are the district appointed School for the Deaf. Even with that much going for us, we need your help so we can soar to even greater heights!

My Project

As this year goes by, I am seeing just how many of my students could benefit from having a bilingual dictionary at their fingertips. My school has a few available for use, but I think it would really be more effective if I could have them in my classroom and to be able to teach them how to use them the correct way.

Having these bilingual dictionaries in the classroom to use at our discretion will greatly help my students prepare for their future.

With your help, all of these kids will increase their English vocabulary as well as improve their reading and writing.
