My classes are culturally diverse based on ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, gender, exceptionalities, religion, and geographical area. Our English Language Arts classes focus on recognizing and appreciating cultural diversity, which prepares each student to be productive citizens in the “real world,” as well as applying literary skills to cross-curricular articles and activities. Therefore, to reach all my students, utilizing current events and high interest materials engage and excite my students.
My goal is to encourage my students to explore and appreciate the world around them.
Throughout the year, I challenge my students to step out of their comfort zone . My students are unique, fun, energetic, competitive risk takers. Each one of them strives to be successful in all aspects of the class. Years from now, I want each of my students to remember this class was not only where they learned about English Language Arts, but where they learned how to solve problems, how to deal with change, and how to appreciate their world.
Scope provides materials to my students to review relevant current events through engaging and challenging materials. Students are introduced to cultures and people from across time and around the globe, challenging their ideas of everyday life. The articles include a variety of subject areas, including Social Studies, Science, and Math.
These tiny magazines pack a punch!
Students utilize key literacy skills while reading paired fiction and nonfiction articles (that often seem like they're fiction, but are actually true!) Scope also utilizes online resources, such as video clips, that draw students into the lesson, ignite interest, and lead to powerful connections.
