Documenting Our Class

My students need this document camera so we can work better as a close. We will use it for modeling close reading, writing activities and practice annotations.

My Students

I have the privilege of working with some amazing high school students. I get to teach all levels of kids because I teach everything from senior elective classes such as mythology and science fiction to the dual credit college classes of writing and literature.

My kids come to my class with genuine curiosity and desire to make their future better.

They make me want to be the best teacher I can be so that I know they are getting the challenge they deserve. I am truly blessed to get to know 130+ amazing kids every year!

My Project

I currently do not have a strong way to model the skills my students need. With this document camera, we will be able to collaborate on close readings, annotating texts and revising our writings. By being able to create activities and lessons that are more student driven and adding the classroom collaboration, students will improve their reading and writing skills and also develop a stronger sense of community in our classroom. Changing my lessons this way will also help build confidence in my students and encourage them learn form theirs, mine, and the classroom’s mistakes and challenges. It’s very exciting to see how much of a positive effect this could have in my classroom.
