My Students

I teach 10th graders who come from diverse backgrounds, and with that, have diverse needs and desires. Some of them are college bound, some are not, and some are undecided. Some of them identify themselves as readers and love reading, but many of them do not - and with some of them, it is because they are still learning English or because they are burnt out on life for various reasons.

Overall, my students are great and need love and patience as any other human being in our world.

As I have been working with my students to get them excited about independent reading, I am seeing that they are not a lost cause and can, indeed, fall in love with reading. With a lot of encouragement, engagement, guidance and convincing, they can still be taught and influenced, and they are buying into the idea that reading makes them smarter.

My Project

The books I have chosen are high interest and relevant to teens. They will help to hold my students' attention and interest and compel them to read for an extended amount of time. The extended amount of time reading will help students build reading stamina, which will ultimately help them out with tackling more difficult texts in the future.

In addition to turning students into readers, these books also have the potential to give them a broader vocabulary and understanding of life.

Also, these books will help them to become better writers as they consciously and unconsciously observe professional writers.
