My Students

Students in my self-contained Special Education Science Classes have many challenges in their everyday life. Growing up in our state's capital city where there are high crime and poverty levels, all students in my classes are currently reading between 3-7 grade levels below their peers; half are still reading at primary levels.

While I was assessing one student's literacy skills, he looked at me and said, "I don't know how to read."

I have had some great opportunities this year. I thought that students would be embarrassed that they couldn't read, but they are more interested in learning to read. Now I want to include more topical science stories while I practice close reading. Scholastic Science World is full of fun and interesting stories.

My Project

Struggling readers commonly express their pain in reading as boring. Scholastic Science World offers exciting child-based science stories that supplement our learning while strengthening literacy skills. We will be able to read about applied sciences, environmental stories, and introduce them to new parts of the natural world and new technology.

Making reading fun and interesting makes it easier to teach struggling readers.

Focusing on a science theme, we have a variety of interesting stories that help students understand the natural world they live in. They will read about other teenage students who are doing incredible activities to make the world a better place to live.
