My Students

My students are high-achieving, curious, diverse, and ambitious urban high school students striving for college. I teach 10th grade and 11th grade advanced placement language and composition.

Our school is an exam school in an urban public school district, which means that all of my students passed a rigorous exam and maintained a competitive GPA to gain admission to our school.

Though one of our primary missions is to provide students with a rich literary and technological experience, we lack the books and other resources to do so.

My Project

My students are enrolled in Advanced Placement Language and Composition, which is a rigorous course centered around developing well-informed global citizens who can read, write, and argue logically.

One key component to the class is staying informed about national and global news.

At a recent AP training, many teachers in other school districts were raving about how their districts provided the magazine The Week for their classes and how it has impacted their students' general awareness of the world around them in a significant way. The magazine synthesizes the top news stories in a accessible format.

My school has provided us with one copy a week, which has been an awesome resource. I can see my students are engaged and thinking about a wide range of important topics. The next step in our "current events" journey is a class set, so all students can work with the text at the same time!
