My Students

Our students come from one of the most economically distressed parts of our city. Every day, they overcome challenges in their community, families and their individual lives. These challenges include single parent (or even "zero" parent) homes, violence, poverty and discrimination.

Despite the fact they face many obstacles, they are determined to get the education that will lift them out of poverty and set them on the path to new horizons.

They need to have a rich background of literacy and critical thinking to successfully complete their journey.

My Project

Our students come into our high school with low reading levels. Yet, I have high expectations for them. I seek to provide scaffolding to enable them to improve their reading and critical thinking skills.

These texts which provide both the original words of Shakespeare and an updated language version which will provide the scaffolding they need to learn the beauties of the greatest of all English dramatists.

The play, Romeo and Juliet, centers on two teenagers caught up in problems created by their parents. This is not unlike the situations these students find themselves in today. The two families are constantly at war with each other. Once again, Shakespeare touches on a situation near to our students' experience.

This play is relevant to their lives.

Help me show this to them.
