My Students

The students in Power Hour group are students in that are struggling with reading. Some students have IEP's (Special Education Plans) and some do not. Students who are in guided reading groups are at least two years below grade level in reading.

The school is a public charter school that all students in the school are eligible for a free lunch.

Students come into our school several grades below grade level because they were not given the opportunity and support in their past school.

My Project

The requested Junior Scholastic subscriptions will provide magazines to each student who is in the reading intervention Power Hour (those students who have been identified as needing small group or whole group reading intervention for at least thirty-five mins a day). This is not just a subscription for these students. It is a porthole to the world around them that they may not have access to.

In addition to giving students access to current events, this project will give students access to nonfiction texts.

85% of the books my students have access to are fiction. This creates a deficit in their ability to read and write nonfiction texts. This deficit was seen in our last round of state testing where students scored significantly lower in nonfiction tasks than on fiction.
