My school is considered an inner city school. Students in my class come from very diverse backgrounds from all sections of our city. English is not the first language of approximately 40 percent of my students and over 65 percent are categorized as low income.
"Even on your worst day, you can be a student's best hope", is a quote by Manny Scott, which has impacted me greatly.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am hoping to provide them with the supplies, tools and learning experiences that they are entitled to. Many of these students come to school without the necessary supplies needed on a daily basis.
These resources will be used during the writing process when students are revising and editing. Students will use the colored pens to perform DARE (Delete Unnecessary Information, Add more details, Rearrange text, Exchange words for better words) & CUPS (Capital, Usage, Punctuation, Spelling). Once that step in the writing process has been complete, students will type their final copies.
In today's world, so much of our lives focus on technology.
For this reason, students must learn how to use not only type their work, but learn how to use the different features of a computer. Unfortunately, many times, we are unable to print their typed writing pieces because I do not have any paper to put into the printer. At this time, 8 classrooms share one printer, which is not stationed in my classroom. Many times the printer is jammed or out of ink. Having a classroom printer will alleviate these problems.
