I teach at a high-poverty school with a high percentage of English as Second Language students and students with exceptional needs. Our kiddos work hard to learn the basics and are pushed to meet the expectations given to them.
My kiddos are from a rural, high poverty school in Indiana.
Like most middle schoolers, our kiddos struggle to discover themselves and their place in the world. Inspiring them to read and write at a higher level will only encourage more growth- both personally and academically.
Our school is taking a look at Reader’s and Writer’s workshop. I have huge learning gaps in my 8th grade classroom. My reluctant readers will read graphic novels. Reading Workshop is all about learning through independent reading. In order to help my students transition, I need some more graphic novels to encourage independent reading! I am new to this as well! The two teacher resources are to help my colleagues and I navigate a new way of teaching! Together, we are stronger! Our kiddos need a new approach to help bridge those gaps and prepare them for high school or beyond!
