My Students

With a separate writing class this year that focuses on skills that will transition them into high school and college, my middle school students are seeing the value, importance and need for authentic, dynamic writing to enhance their future.

Our school is a Title I school whose demographics are mostly minority students who qualify for free and reduced price lunch based upon the incomes of their families in the surrounding communities.

They are students with dreams who see their abilities come to fruition from hard work and consistent effort. They live in wonder at the opportunities that lie just outside their reach and are eager to do what it takes to get to that milestone.

My Project

My students need wireless keyboards, batteries and device stands that are compatible with iPad so they can efficiently type their papers in Writing Class. My students will use the technology to bridge the gap because they are digital natives. Using the wireless keyboards will enhance their typing, writing and efficiency. This year, we will use lots of interactive strategies to emphasize the importance of revision and editing in our written work. In addition, the students will be able to type their papers for the first time, submit them digitally and use my personal feedback to make the necessary changes.

Our students are entering a competitive world where the efficient use of technology is a necessity.

Honing their skills in writing while seamlessly using technology will increase their comfort and confidence levels which will prepare them for the future in education and in life.
