The students I teach come from a wide variety of sociocultural and economic backgrounds. They come from a town with a deep sense of community that sits next to the largest commercial port in the United States. We are a Title I school and the students face many of the social and educational needs that accompany that title.
Many of the students are beginning to learn that their 7th grade year builds a strong foundation for the literacy skills they will cultivate in high school.
My goal is to support them in their preparation for the reading, writing, speaking, and listening they'll be doing in their college years and adult lives.
In our English classroom, we have a 1:1 Chromebook ratio, but we often have trouble keeping our class set intact when older models break down or need to be repaired. This is a way for us to make sure we have alternates so that students are always able to do the research and word processing they need to succeed in English to make the subject come alive for them. With these Chromebooks, students will create presentations on 1950's American culture in preparation to read The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. When done, they will present out to the whole class. Thank you!
