My Students

I teach students that come from all backgrounds, from upper-middle-class to low-SES. Our district is working on implementing STEM and technology more in our students' learning.

I am a part of a group working to improve technology instruction in the classroom.

The students have really taken to using new technologies to help them learn standards-based skills along with modern technology skills.

We've been working a lot on collaboration skills, and I'm trying to set up the classroom to be more conducive to facilitating group discussions. The students have really taken to working together well. I work on utilizing student choice as much as possible to get my students more engaged in the classroom.

My Project

I utilize a lot of student choice in the reading in my classroom. I let students choose a lot of what they read while we work on reading and analyzing skills. The male students in my classes seem to be the most difficult group to get into reading, so I'm trying to build up more books in my classroom library that would gain their interest.

From my observation, I've noticed that many of my male students enjoy graphic novels and action/adventure stories, but I'm limited in my selection.

I'm trying to get a good collection to get some of my struggling male readers into reading. Even though it's visual, many graphic novels contain a lot of literary depth. The graphic novels I want to purchase also cover serious subjects that are relevant even today.

My goal is to use these to support some of my struggling readers who haven't quite made a breakthrough yet this year. Any support you could give would be incredibly appreciated.
