Help me give my students copies of Gem of the Ocean, a whiteboard/flipchart easel, self-stick easel pads, sticky-notes, and colorful highlighters!
I teach IB Language and Literature and AP Literature and Composition. Both are classes for seniors. This year, we are reading several dramas to prepare for the high-level essays they must write at the end of the semester. These books and supplies will allow me to provide hard copies of the text for the students to analyze instead of PDF versions which are harder to read and only accessible at school for students without technology at home. I am also requesting supplies to help with their analysis, such as highlighters for color-marking and plenty of sticky notes (large and small) to record our findings.
Many of my students are expressive and kinesthetic learners. Reading from PDF copies with plain notebooks just does not make for a memorable unit. However, with copies of this compelling drama (Gem Of The Ocean by August Wilson) for each student to hold, annotate, and read from, post-its to aid with annotation and our interactive journals, self-stick flip charts with a stand to present our findings to one another and catch all of our great ideas, and assorted colorful highlighters to color mark (a color-coded annotation strategy), this will definitely be an engaging and impactful unit! Some days, students will take turns reading aloud in parts from their text while other students serve as scribes to record important details on the flip charts. Other days, students will read silently and color-mark their texts, which will become deeper written analyses or presentations! Help us make this a memorable and lively unit for the seniors so that they feel confident heading into their highly challenging IB and AP exams!
