My Students

My students are 7th and 8th graders at a dual-language school in Boston. My students have been taught in both English and Spanish since kindergarten. They are very thoughtful and constantly diving into learning while taking on leadership in the classroom.

They love to explore new ideas, cultures and concepts each and every day.

I am lucky to explore with them through my Humanities course. They are a wonderful group of students that see their individual success wrapped up in the success of others in the class. They work together and are extremely compassionate.

My Project

I want students to be instantly engaged in reading at the start of the year. My idea is to begin with an exciting graphic novel called "Lowriders in Space" by Cathy Camper.

The graphic novel highlights both English and Spanish, "with cool Spanish phrases on every page, a glossary of terms, and an action-packed plot that sneaks in science as well as Aztec lore, Lowriders to the Center of the Earth is a linguistic and visual delight.

¡Que suave!" After reading this book, students will have the chance to write their own graphic novels.

The graphic novel features Lupe Impala, Elirio Malaria, and El Chavo Octopus. "Lupe Impala, Elirio Malaria, and El Chavo Octopus are the proud owners of their very own garage. But when their beloved cat Genie goes missing, they need to do everything they can to find him.

Little do they know the trail will lead them to the realm of Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of the Underworld, who is keeping Genie prisoner!" This graphic novel provides an inroad for students to instantly get engaged in reading. Thank you in advance for helping me get a class set of "Lowriders in Space!"
