My Students

Welcome to our English Language Arts classroom in Gwinn, Michigan. Our high school is tucked in the pines of the beautiful and remote Upper Peninsula. My students are quirky, fun, and high energy.

I teach 10th through 12th graders whose interests range from playing sports to participating in drama camp to showing farm animals at the county fair.

Our school is categorized as high poverty. All students are offered free breakfast and lunch, and I am thankful that they don't have to worry about what they will eat and instead can focus on what they will learn.

My Project

As an English Language Arts teacher, it is a good problem to have that my students are requesting lots of new titles for our classroom library. Maybe they have read the first book in a series and are thirsting for more. Or they have discovered a new favorite author. Or a certain genre of books grabs their attention, for example graphic novels.

Every one of the books on this list has been requested by a student -- and it is only the first month of school!

Because we do not have an operational school library, I try my best to stock our classroom library with novels the students cannot wait to read.

In addition to the books, I am requesting the board game Salem 1692 for students to play while reading The Crucible by Arthur Miller. This game of strategy, deceit, and luck will draw them into themes and characters found in the play about the Salem witch trials.
