My Students

I teach in the small city of Oakley in northern California. Our city's growth is booming and we enjoying many new families from diverse cultures join our community. The students come from may different walks of life. Some have been with our district from kindergarten on while many of them just moved here over the summer into a new home being built across the street from our school.

Many of my students are ELs which requires different and sometimes modified curriculum to better suit their needs.

I try very hard to incorporate several different learning styles into my teaching. We use technology regularly in the classroom as well as a variety of classroom activities to make sure I can reach all my students and the different ways they learn.

My Project

I have been reading Beowulf with my English and Language Arts classes for the past five years and my current class set of Beowulf novels are tattered and worn. I am in great need of a new set for my students to use. This great story is an excellent novel to teach theme and symbolism to the students.

I have developed an interactive notebook along with this novel that helps with the vocabulary, plot, mood, tone, conflict, characterization, and themes.

Many of the assignments go right along with this novel. Students may be asked to read passage on page 8 and tell me the mood the author is conveying. Please consider funding my project.
