My Students

They are amazing and inspiring young people who selected our urban public school because they connect with its "green" mission and our small, family-like environment. One unique aspect of our school is that we proudly serve students with disabilities -- including students with severe disabilities in our "learning for Independence" program and students with moderate disabilities in inclusion settings. All in all, 32% of our school's young people are students with disabilities. This project will be used solely for the 9th grade substantially-separate special education English class where all students are classified as having moderate disabilities and therefore need a smaller educational setting with additional adult supporters.

Our student body reflects the demographics of the public school population of the city of Boston: 82% are living at or below the federal poverty line; 54% are African American, 31% are Hispanic, and 12% are English-language learners.

My Project

My special education students LOVE to read. They are averaging 5 titles per student, per semester and they are hungry for more books that they can sink into without fear of ridicule or stigma because they are not yet reading on grade level.

Help me give my students super interesting books about topics they care about and in genres, they love such as romance, horror, and suspense.

These books will help my most at-risk students continue their journey towards becoming life-long readers and achieve their unique and individual reading goals. These titles were handpicked by the 15 students in my substantially-separate education class and they reflect their diverse needs and interests.
