I teach more than 150 high school students who are unable to read and comprehend at grade level. The majority of my students are not native-English speakers learning English as a Second Language. The main objective for both my ESOL students and my "intensive readers" is to help students accelerate in development of reading and writing skills and to strengthen these skills so they are able to successfully read, write, and comprehend grade-level text independently. Instruction emphasizes reading comprehension and vocabulary through the use of a variety of literary and informational texts encompassing a broad range of text structures, genres, and levels of complexity.
I would appreciate your support to obtain an annual subscription for Flocabulary to help engage and motivate my students. I've had the opportunity to use this resource in the past and I've found that students appreciate and learn from the engaging graphics and uplifting beats.
My high school students will benefit tremendously from this opportunity to remediate their learning through song and dance.
Flocabulary's multi-sensory approach of using music, rhythm and rhyme is supported by a profound body of academic research. Music facilitates memorization and recall of academic content, while the use of hip-hop and other culturally-relevant media increases student engagement.
