My Students

My school is located in the Silicon Valley in Sunnyvale, California. Most of my students speak another language at home. In fact, 52% of the students at my school are English Language Learners.

Even though we are close to the tech world, many of my students come from families without disposable income.

37% of the students at my school are designated as Low-income. Thus, I feel it is extremely important that my students be exposed to current events, interesting nonfiction articles, as well as past historical events and upcoming cultural events.

This year, we have lost funding for Scholastic News Magazine. I have used this magazine to supplement my Common Core curriculum, and have had amazing results. I am hoping that someone will be willing to fund a years worth of magazines for my students. We will use these magazines weekly and gain access to Engaging videos, worksheets, digital games, and language arts skills.

My Project

Scholastic News and Science Spin magazines will provide insight into current events and engaging nonfiction articles to supplement my teaching.

Students will be exposed to world events, cultural holidays, and anything else relevant going on in our world today.

Students will become informed global citizens through the knowledge gained from this weekly publication.

With this gift, I will have access to engaging videos, vocabulary development for my English Language Learners, Common Core related worksheets, iPad app features (that all students will be able to use on their school iPads), and whole class digital comprehension games. I will also be able to use this information to create assessments as well as projects.
