My Students

My students are special because they are able to overcome their circumstances and achieve their goals. Our school serves students who are raised in low income homes. Many of the students do not have the opportunity to experience things that many children as well as myself experienced as a child. Our school works hard to make sure students are successful academically and socially. Our goal is to give students the confidence they need to believe in themselves and achieve their goals regardless of their hardships.

My Project

These materials will make a difference because it will give students the opportunity to learn new information about the society. These materials will help the students because it will combined reading and social studies. They will be able to learn current events and discuss it with their classmates. It will influence students to want to make a change as well as encourage students to read more. It is important that the students of the future are familiar and know about the events that happen in their community, their state and the world. The materials will also help to facilitate rich discussions in the classroom.
