My Students

My students are passionate, energetic, and insightful. They love to learn and I try to make things as hands on and visual for them. They thrive in a kinesthetic environment and love group discussion.

Having copies of "The Giver" for them would help my classroom and my students get the visual and physical aspect of their own personal book.

While all my students have great potential, some of them feel defeated when reading. Being in a title one school, my students aren't always surrounded by literature at home and struggle with texts in class. They are passionate and smart and allowing them each a copy would give them a sense of ownership. We are going to highlight, annotate, and do many discussions with this book. My students will thrive in this environment and having this book will enable them to get the best education possible.

My Project

These materials would make a difference in my students learning because many of them do not have ample opportunity to be immersed in literature in their day to day life. In a Title 1 school, socioeconomic status can play a negative role in fluence and literacy. This text is relatable to my students. It is about an adolescent male finding himself in the world and navigating where he belongs.

My students are also navigating through the events that the main character of this story goes through.

This story will resonate with my students and will also enable their creativity and imagination. Having the physical copy of this text as a resource would be so beneficial for a literature unit. The students will be allowed to keep the copy after the unit, as the annotations and vocabulary will aid them in the future and they can add it to their library at home!
