My Students

"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow." ~ John Dewey My 21st century learners are enthusiastic about hands-on, digital learning. They relate best to apps in class as a result of the amount of time they spend on their personal technology devices.

My students make up a third of the roughly 400 ninth graders at our county's public high school of almost 1,500 students.

These students come from four separate feeder schools; they make up five sections of English 9, and one section of composition. They are diverse in the ways they learn where they excel and struggle at a variety of levels. Regardless of those levels, they all desire to learn and advance. Plus, they all have excellent attitudes towards trying new things.

My Project

I have learned that with my students, the best way to get them to read is to incorporate more contemporary authors into our curriculum. The novel The Hate U Give is a national bestseller that touches on events that occur throughout the country every single day. Some of my students have seen firsthand these events unfold.

It is important to start a conversation and make connections to the real world.

Additionally, the various supplemental material requested will be used with other novels and plays that we cover in this class. All materials will be utilized among the students and teacher.
