My Students

My students are young adults new to the country and ready to reach their version of the American Dream. These students are recent immigrants to the US from various Latin American countries who are being instructed in Spanish and transitioning into English. They are super energetic, funny, and so kind.

Despite the many harsh circumstances that come with being non-English speaking immigrants, my students come to class everyday eager to learn and are some of the happiest, funniest people I have ever meet.

I strive to make my classroom a fun, postive, welcoming enviornment as for many of my students this is their first experience in The United States.

My Project

These novels in the requested Grade 7 Favorites and Grade 7 High Interest book sets will allow students to choose novels of high-interest that appeal to them. Our school library has very a limited number of modern novels. Students will be eager to read modern texts as opposed to decade old tattered novels.

Students will read independently for at least 20 minutes daily.

Students will then complete a book project of their choice at the end of their reading. These include a timeline of the novel, a comic strip, a powerpoint presentation, a movie poster, etc. Students will be required to have an independent reading novel assigned at all times throughout the school year.
