I propose activities in which my resource reading class can utilize a classroom set of dictionaries to individually define, apply and learn words that are essential to increase their literacy levels. These activities are worked through and evaluated on a weekly basis. Currently we use two dictionaries for the entire class, which can lead to frustration and embarrassment for the kids (some are able to work so much faster than others). Our goal for this year is to accomplish one of the many steps toward High School graduation: passing the eighth-grade end-of-grade test. The ultimate goal, of course, is to develop a high-school level vocabulary. These students are identified as learning disabled, behavior disabled, ADHD and/ or mentally delayed. Our class is only for students who are actively involved in special ed. and have not yet passed the EOG. We are asking for assistance in buying fifteen in-class dictionaries so as to guarantee the participation of all kids. I want my students to have this experience for a few reasons. First I want a variety of resources for the kids to utilize in their exploration of language. I also would like to have higher-quality materials that we now possess so the students do not feel neglected or overlooked. In special education we tend to get a lot of "hand-me downs" and outdated materials. These students deserve better. Thank you!!
