My students need high-quality, fiction and nonfiction books that are continually accessible to them in my classroom in order to develop literacy skills.
Seventh-grade students are one-of-a-kind--there is never a dull moment in my day. My students are very candid, sometimes brutally so, and although that can be a challenge, it's a quality that I respect (I've been told that my hair looks like curly fries and that my classroom walls are old-man gray).
My students notice everything around them, including the state of our facilities, and it has become a recent goal of mine to create the best environment for my students that I possibly can in terms of educational, physical, and emotional elements.
I have some of the brightest, hard-working students, and they deserve the best that their community and educators can give them. I believe that by investing in Hawkins County's students, we are investing in a brighter future for our community and children.
My students need access to great non-fiction and fiction books. When I moved into my classroom five years ago, I inherited an extremely out-dated classroom library comprised of books in extremely poor condition. My students are not motivated to read by this out-dated library.
Research indicates that male students are more motivated to read non-fiction texts than fiction texts.
Currently, my fiction to non-fiction text ratio in my classroom library does not reflect a balance that is engaging to all students. Texts like I Am Malala, A Storm Too Soon, Night, Bomb, Guts and Glory, and Witches! offer historical, high-interest non-fiction to balance out my classroom library and engage ALL of my students. I Am Malala will be a text that I use extensively in class and read with the entire class. Other books will be accessible for students to use to complete independent studies and projects.
