My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

My students need graphic novels as part of our classroom library to practice and improve the inference reading skill in the language arts classroom.

Using graphic novels in the classroom reduces the anxiety of having to read every single word in a text and in context.

Graphic novels provide pictorial clues to reading by using graphics instead of bombarding readers with words. The way graphic novels are designed, there is room for practicing inference skills for reading. Since text is limited, the frames of the illustrations provides opportunities for readers to infer meaning and messages throughout the novel. Graphic novels are designed to be longer than a typical comic book. They are much longer, much like a novel is longer than a picture book. My students will be exposed to literature in an innovative way, but still practical to classroom instruction. This means that they will have an alternative way of acquiring reading skills, specifically inference skills, by using graphic novels instead of traditional novels. Inferencing is one of the toughest reading skills that students must master. This is a cool way to practice.

Graphic novels provide a different way of presenting literature to students. The variety of graphic novels cover the different genres that are studied in the language arts classroom. My students will greatly appreciate having more graphic novels at their disposal. They will view reading differently.
