My Students

The students in my classes have a wide variety of interests. They are very involved with sports and clubs after school.

They are sponges--soaking up all of the information that they possibly can.

They love learning. The students in my classes especially enjoy unusual facts about people, places, and events. They never seem to tire of this and they often ask if they can research further during any free time we have during the school day. They truly are going to be lifelong learners.

My Project

These books will be able to be used for a variety of purposes.

Students will be able to focus on a particular area of a topic that they are interested in.

They will be able to use these books to help research more information for independent projects. They will be able to pick the topic that interests them and the final project based on the topic.

These content based books will also allow for more integration between Social Studies, Writing, and Literacy. These books will also be used during lessons to model how readers think and how authors use all parts of a book to tell their information.
