My Students

As a 7th grade English Language Arts teacher, I lack the necessary reading materials and resources to nurture and grow my students individual reading levels in my classes. As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty Title I school district located in rural northeastern North Carolina, I teach inquisitive learners in a school with limited funding and resources. Therefore, I find it difficult to meet the diverse needs of all of my students in the areas of reading and writing skills.

My Project

Students are required to analyze characters motivations and explain their relationships between the authors lives and stories they write. My students will read their books daily and on "Drop Everything and Read" (DEAR) day; "Book Talks" on Fridays in small group sessions(Think, Pair & Share) time. Instead of completing written book reports, students will create Book Trailers" which will be somewhere between a book report and a movie trailer. Students present (Individual Oral Presentations) of the central characters, themes, or issues of the book visually and through written and voiceover narration. A good book trailer would include the title of the book, the author’s name, and a presentation that is both authentic to the text and that works to “hook” readers. In addition, as a way to check for mastery of the reading concepts, students will have the opportunity evaluate students oral presentations using rubrics (peer evaluations and feedback). Students will also create questions to ask students that will require students to discuss the elements of a story and cite textual evidence to support their claims which correlate with the NCCCC ELA Standards.
