Books to Support Student Goals
My students need books in order to help them meet their reading goals. Every week my students set new goals and these books will help with the development of their fluency and comprehension skills.
My students come from a variety of backgrounds. The school I teach in is over 80% free and reduced lunch. Many of my students come from homes that are effected by poverty, unemployment, and instability. School is the stable force in many of their lives.
My students are a diverse group of motivated and curious learners.
They enjoy reading, drawing, and digging deeper into a variety of topics. Some of their favorite topics to learn about are animals, space, and Pokemon.
My school is tracking reading using a new model, called the IRLA. These books will help students meet their individual reading goals. In order to move to the next level, students have to read a certain number of books at their current level.
These books will provide students with an opportunity to choose books at their level.
When students feel they are ready, they will have a conversation with me about these books. They will summarize, answer comprehension questions, and make inferences. In order to keep student interest, I need book that are not only at their levels, but also of high interest to them.
