My Students

In the classic text, Invisible Man, Ralph Ellison wrote: "When I discover who I am, I'll be free." That is why English Language Arts is, if not the most important, one of the most important subjects a child can study. Through the study and critique of literature, students are exposed to cultures, identities, and social issues similar and different from their own. Students are opened to the world, can explore new experiences, and their own identity.

In East Tulsa, 1 in 16 students graduate from college.

This appalling statistic is a reality for my students because of their identity. In my school, our mission is to ensure that every student not only goes to college, but thrives and graduates from college. They are not Invisible.

My Project

I have requested dictionaries for every student in 8th grade English Language Arts class. Dictionaries are an invaluable resource. My students need dictionaries for many reasons.

Students will use the dictionaries to build their vocabulary.

A well developed vocabulary is necessary for students to understand the world around them as well as communicate their ideas to others. In our study of literature, students will encounter complex texts with word which are unfamiliar. However, by using the dictionaries, scholars will be able to not only understand the text and add to their lexicon, they will also gain a sense of accomplishment and self reliance.
