My Students

The majority of my students read below grade level. This is for a variety of reasons, but the best way to get them to improve as readers is to get them reading more! My students LOVE graphic novels, books about sports, funny books, and dystopian series. These are the kinds of books that keep them reading and thinking deeper about what they read. When my students are excited about the books they are reading, there is no stopping them! Finding right book is the hardest part for a lot of my students, but once they do they love reading.

Many of my students are English Language Learners.

These students, and students who do not struggle with English at all, absolutely devour graphic novels. Having more of these in my classroom library would help to motivate these students to read more and help them grow in their English proficiency.
