My Students

The students at Comstock High School are a diverse group with respect to racial, ethnic and socio-economic measures. While we do have a small population of student who come from homes with strong income bases, most of our students do not. Our district has such a high poverty population that our schools qualify for free breakfast and lunch for all students.

Our students do not have many basic school supplies of their own, and often rely on those that are donated or provided by the teachers and staff in our buildings.

In addition, many of the departments in our high school have limited budgets for enhancement resources to assist in developing our curriculum.

My Project

The Scholastic Upfront magazine will provide current events materials that are accessible for learners with varying reading abilities and also practice in many Common Core skills. The novel materials we are hoping to get from Teachers Pay Teachers will help develop a more robust literature curriculum for our Historical Fiction course.

We have been involved in a county-wide literacy initiative and these course materials will allow for our classroom libraries to meet the standards for diversity of materials and accessibility for readers of different skill levels.

These supplemental materials will help development our social studies and literature curricula, allowing for enhanced delivery of instruction and better student achievement.
