Dictionaries to Support Vocabulary Expansion!

Help me give my students a class set of dictionaries. Developing a robust vocabulary is a must for all students. Additionally, students learning English need to be able to translate words.

My Students

AP English Language is a rigorous, college level course. It is a class that requires dedication, hard work and critical thinking at the highest level. I teach this class to a group of amazing high schoolers of different backgrounds, cultures and experiences. Some of my students have arrived in the country only several years before, learning the language at lightening speed. Other students are native to the US, but travel an hour each way to make their way to school. No matter my students' story, each one is infused with a passion for success, social justice and creating change.

My juniors have lofty post graduation goals ranging from attending medical school to majoring in sports management and understand that doing well in class is the vehicle to achieving their aspirations.

With your help, each student can continue surging towards reaching their dreams and changing the world.

My Project

Developing a robust vocabulary is a must for every student. Additionally, when students encounter words they are unfamiliar with, it is imperative that they have a resource to help them understand. A class set of dictionaries will ensure that no student has to be confused. I also teach students who are in the process of learning the English language. Spanish to English dictionaries are a necessary part of their language development.

Words open the doors to communication.

The ability to employ diverse diction is a skill that my students are learning, but need your help and support in order to continue with their learning journey.
