My Students

My students come to school everyday excited to learn and be challenged. They are the first class in a new Middle School Honors Academy that has been designed to target the needs of a high performing students that have been notoriously under-served in our community. The Middle School Honors Program was designed to link with our High School Dual Enrollment Academy that partners with a local university.

Our 6th grade class is comprised of approximately 100 extremely hard-working, intelligent honors students with diverse backgrounds and interests.

They are passionate, artistic, creative and energetic! The Middle School Academy is housed within a Title I high school that is categorized with 80% of the population receiving a free or reduced lunch. When the program was created we were provided essential materials that would allow the program to succeed. Teachers have had to work hard to innovative when planning lessons for this set of unique learners. Working through our first semester, we have identified areas of needs improvement. One such area is greater access to appropriate lexile/grade-level reading material.

My Project

Students in the middle school program are avid readers, they read anything and everything they can get their hands on. In order to continue to cultivate this love of learning and reading, we have established a reading library to provide continued access to grade appropriate reading materials.

The donations for this project will go toward adding fun and interesting grade level fiction books to the new middle school program's reading library.

With the additional middle school books, we can facilitate student led book club discussions and book talks using critical thinking questions and presentation skills. We would implement targeted reading strategies to break down difficult texts that would lead to more independent reading. Allowing students to select from their own interests provides ownership over learning, and fosters a life-long love of reading. In addition to improved reading skills, research has proven that the more students read, the more their writing skills improve.
