My Students

I am lucky to teach a group of amazing and smart middle school students that love to learn new things and work together to find meaning in their work. My students are always interested in applying the work they are doing or the texts that they are reading to their lives and experiences. They especially enjoy collaborating to uncover deeper meaning in readings and are excited to build on one another's ideas.

Although my students are motivated and curious, they do not always have access to the resources that will help to further their education.

Students are often behind grade level in reading and writing and collaborating helps them to be engaged as well as improve their comprehension. Many students that I teach are also English Language Learners so a project like this will also help them to continue to improve and learn.

This project will help a group of motivated and excited students be able to excel in their education in the way that they want to.

My Project

My school and students often do not have access to resources that are necessary for students to get a great education. One of those resources is a classroom sets of books. I have chosen two sets of books that can be used by my whole class that are high interest, accessible to the varied reading levels that exist in my classroom, and able to be explored well beyond the surface. Harry Potter and the Scorer's Stone, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are both books that entertain, engage, and educate students.

It is important that students see a story beyond simply the plot line.

These books will enable our class to look at story, but also the moral lessons that they teach. It gives students the opportunity to explore characters, scenarios, and then apply the story lessons to their lives.
