My Students

When the founders of our country were drafting our first set of laws, they took into account not only what they wanted to accomplish, but what they wanted the new nation to "feel" like. My students have this same mindset when they enter our American history class. They are students with goals! They are students with plans and ideas. They are a special group because they know that their attitude is key.

We are a K8 school in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.

My students have grown up together and know each other's strengths and weaknesses. They lift each other up. We also have newcomers to our country whose parents are looking for a safe place for their children to learn and be a part of a family. Our school feels different because we ROAR!

My Project

Blacklight flashlights, along with our own highlighters, will make the evidence jump off of the page and take our Close Reading to the next level. We read for evidence, vocabulary, key details, and to connect to other text almost everyday in 8th grade. Using the flashlights will turn reading into a Glow Party!

We will then share the blacklight flashlights with our 3rd grade little buddies to share the excitement of reading!

Students will be begging to annotate and read for evidence! Reading scientific articles and primary documents doesn't have to be boring and with these items we will be able to share the joy with other students at our K-8 school.
