The high school, student population that I have the pleasure of teaching this year qualify for title one funding. Many of them depend on school lunch and breakfast. Parents often work double shifts and as my students become old enough to work, they get a job to help out. Often, they come to school tired. Many of them express the worry that they are afraid to go home for fear of finding out they have been evicted.
They possess the passion and drive to do well.
The desire to graduate is strong. They know they want better for themselves. Some face considerable obstacles. Quite a few fall into the lowest 25% and 35%, as per the FSA Reading and Writing state assessment.
The easel, chart paper, markers, post it notes and tape dispensers will be utilized to create fun, engaging lessons in my ELA classroom. Not only will these items aid whole group instruction, they will be a wonderful asset when working with small groups.
Diverse learners benefit from hands on materials and these items will allow me to design lessons and activities that will keep them engaged and excited about learning.
Resources such as anchor charts for writing and reading will be created. Activities such as gallery walks, four corners and jigsaw learning will capture student interest and engross even the less motivated.
