My Students

I have a talkative group of students. These students have a desire to learn. They love activities and projects and especially love researching the truth behind the novels. These historical events in literature truly engage them. They strive to do well in school. Many of them have outside jobs and participate in extracurricular activities. Most of the students plan on going to college.

Some of the students will be first in their family to attend college.

Daily, they work on skills that will help them succeed in school and in life. They know they have the community behind them. When they are not working hard in school, they are working in their community. Many even work after school jobs to support their family and community. The school is behind them willing to do all that is needed to help them complete their dreams.

My Project

My students need 30 copies of the novel Night and clear contact paper and bookplates to preserve the novel. The students will read the novel and look at the history behind it. They will use context clues to decipher unknown words. They will explore religion and beliefs. The students will use the easel pads and markers to work in groups and answer questions and discuss topics. They will use the dry erase markers to share answers with the class.

The students will complete a research project while reading the novel.

They will examine the author's perspective of the historical events. The students will look at the diction and syntax in the novel. This novel will allow students to see how history and literature can collide. This will also provide an opportunity to further communication skills.
