My Students

I teach 8th grade ELA to some pretty amazing students. They live in a small, close knit community, where family and hard work thrive. My students come from various types of families, and they have life experiences that impact their day to day lives. Some of these experiences are positive; but for most, these experiences are negative. These life experiences can carry over to their education, and they need a safe place to express themselves. My classroom, and this school can be that safe place.

Their voices need to be heard, and I want to be a part of projecting their voices.

There are many ways for them to have their voices heard, so they need the guidance and know-how to express their needs and desires.

My Project

I have chosen the college ruled composition notebooks for my ELA classes. These notebooks will house the student's notes, entry tasks, brain storming information, as well as conversations between the students and myself. As the students work through each unit, they will add knowledge to their notebooks. Each unit will include reading diverse genres, i.e. narratives, informational articles, and argumentative essays. The writing that we will complete will be a narrative, an informational essay, as well as an argument.

With the knowledge, the students will grow into educated young adults.

As I improve as a teacher, I realize the importance of self expression. The use of the notebooks allows the students work through difficult tasks. This student created, and student friendly, notebook will be a quick reference throughout the school year.
