My Students

My ELL tenth grade students are all recent immigrants who are learning English as their second or third language. They are from more than 20 countries and speak more than 6 different languages.

My students are amazing recent immigrants who work part-time jobs, take care of family members, play sports and attend our after-school programs.

My students have loved our new creative writing and journal component of our class, and they are excited to work on our school's first literary magazine,

My Project

In late April, students will publish our school's first literary magazine and host a write-in where my students will lead 9th graders in creative writing activities.

With this Canon lens, my students will be able to take photos and design their individual pages of the literary magazine.

Each of my 40 students will have their own page to combine their creative writing (poetry, drama, memoir, short story, etc.) with their original artwork. Currently, we have a Canon Rebel t61, but as my students are advancing in their art abilities the snap and shoot lens that came with the camera is not enough.

We will also be able to use the lens with our DSLR to create a video that will premier for the write-in and to document the write-in itself.
