Common Core Requires More Copy Paper!

My students need paper for differentiated informational text hard copies.

My Students

This is my second year teaching Living Environment (Science), in East NY, for the NYC Department of Education. I teach in a transfer school, which means the students are overage and under credited. Most students are 17-19 years old. The school is Title 1 compliant and 10% of our population includes students with disabilities.

The printer paper will help students to be able to read more science articles to increase lexicon.

I think the CC will help students achieve writing readiness. I need the supplies to support the students and their learning objectives. I only have 2 computers in the class and students prefer a hard copy.

My Project

I let the students choose what article they would like to read from the Internet. After teacher approval, the students often print the article to write a claim, provide evidence, and their interpretation. Often times, I run out of paper and the students need a hard copy to highlight/takes notes underline, etc... That is why I am trying to buy paper for my students to print articles.
