My Students

Let us be the light for my special education students to read more and improve their comprehension.

I have a diverse group and all of then have different needs, and for that reason they are placed in special education.

They are highly motivated and are willing to learn. They want to graduate high school. My students receive free lunch. Most of them belong in the below average household income.

My Project

Nook is one of the innovations that might be useful to my students to love and embrace reading. It is touch screen and color which may invite students to read. It also comes with reading tools like adjusting fonts, brightness, and a handy dictionary...these are just the advantages that a student with special needs may enjoy.

This project is important for me as a teacher because of of my students have reading skills below 3rd grade.

Considering that they are already in high school and with special needs, a nook can be a good tool to motivate and help them read.
