My Students

How can we close the achievement gap when students do not have the necessary materials to succeed? A review of student grades and school-wide data indicate that students with disabilities are the lowest performing sub-group at our elementary school.

The students in our resource classroom are students with learning, physical, and emotional disabilities.

Our resource room serves students with a range of disabilities, including emotional disturbance, autism, dyslexia, and learning disabilities. The typical student in my class reads at a kindergarten grade level and many struggle with basic phonics and number sense. The opportunity and achievement gaps are apparent among our student population. Materials are not readily available to us and our students require individualized education plans necessary for success in the general education classroom.

My Project

One area my students struggle the most with is reading and writing. Using the Chromebooks with speech to text will allow for my students to be able to write independently and focus on general education goals. I'm requesting 3 Chromebooks for a learning station. At this station, students will be able to listen to stories or practice writing to boost their reading and writing independence.

In my classroom, we practice reading and writing daily using a variety of learning strategies.

The addition of technology would give my students a much needed boost of practice and confidence in the areas of reading and writing. Students who are confident in their reading and writing abilities will be able to increase their independence and achieve their individualized education goals.
