As a 10th grade English teacher, I am largely responsible for preparing students for the NC Writing Assessment. Often, I find that many students have a limited vocabulary and this deficiency is reflected in their writing. For this reason, I am requesting a classroom set of 30 dictionaries and thesauruses. I work at a Title I high school in a rural NC county. The majority of our student population is comprised of minority students. Our school is under funded and many of the resources that we do have are outdated. In short, dictionaries and thesauruses are basic things that will go a long way in helping students perform well on the NC Writing Assessment. Knowing how to spell and having a broad vocabulary are fundamentals that my students desperately need. Thanks for your time and consideration.
