Guided Reading Corner for Struggling Middle School Readers
My students need a small group reading table and chairs for guided reading instruction.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I serve in a Title I priority middle school that services children from highest poverty with many being newly immigrated students. I teach 8th grade language arts to general education classes.
Funding in Title I schools is extremely budgeted and often holes are made in places to fill in other places that are of a higher need.
So often, the arts are one of the first things to go. I am currently completing my doctorate in education where my dissertation focuses on the importance of literacy skill sets among urban youth in preparation for career and college readiness.
I am seeking supplies to help support them in growing as independent readers through the practice of literature circles, guided reading and independent reading.
Most of my students who are in 8th grade are actually reading below a 6th grade level with some being as low as 1st and 2nd grade. Current research shows that small group instruction along with guided reading practices can help under-performing students such as mine to gain up to a year of reading readiness when these intervention strategies are run daily for them.
A reading corner for struggling students will allow them the space to receive these services while affording them the privacy that they need.
The table and chairs will be an upgrade from not having the seated needed in order to offer students true guided reading intervention.
