My Students

I have a range of students in my classroom. About half of them are on my Special Education caseload and I am their direct English teacher. The other half of the classroom is composed of general education students and English Language Learners.

They are high energy students that are excited to learn about things that they can directly relate to.

They are rewarded for their participation and teamwork. They continue to impress me every day; both in the classroom as students and outside the classroom as leaders.

My Project

During this project, students will be looking at the experiences of immigrants from different places. Using the book, "Inside Out and Back Again," students will be creating an op-ed for a newspaper that explains their position of whether immigrating to the United States is worth the trip. They will use evidence from the anchor text as well as other articles to support their argument.

The end product will be a student-ran news website that includes their personal editorials.

Their final product will emphasize the quality of their claim, their use of evidence to support the claim, and the analysis of their evidence.
