My Students

My English classroom in our new Freshman Academy is a place for students to dive deeper into learning with interactive activities supporting their reading and writing. My goal for all students is that they become a community of learners who value their thinking and the work of others.

My students are all freshman at our urban trade and technology high school.

They will be the first group of students to participate in our Freshman Academy program which has been designed to support the whole learner through interactive learning, social and academic support, and reaching out to families to support learners.

My Project

The materials in this project will allow students to fully participate in their English 9 class, interacting with their own ideas as they work through the variety of reading and writing tasks and have a space to write down their thoughts. This project support learning experiences in our dynamic English classroom that will enhance student conversations and presentations about their reading and writing. My learners will be able to have access to their interactive notebook, post-its, and highlighters for everyday class discussions, presentations, and written tasks about reading and writing in their freshmen English class. These materials will be used when interacting with both published texts and student writing to take note of ideas, questions and vocabulary with sticky-notes in the text and in their notebooks.

This year, projects feel especially important as we embark on launching our Freshman Academy.

Each day I provide materials for students in class. It is a never ending need that I am happy to meet in order to observe the a-ha moments I see each day. You can help to not only make sure these students have the supplies they need, but that they know their needs are met and that we are working to support their education. Thank you for your support of my students' learning!
