My Students

My students are 7th and 8th graders at a dual-language school in Boston. My students have been taught in both English and Spanish since kindergarten. They are very thoughtful and constantly diving into learning while taking on leadership in the classroom.

They love to explore new ideas, cultures and concepts each and every day.

I am lucky to explore with them through my Humanities course. They are a wonderful group of students that see their individual success wrapped up in the success of others in the class. They work together and are extremely compassionate.

My Project

My students love to read books that spark their interests. In order to keep my students engaged in reading, I am in need of a four copies of five different interesting books. I am also hoping to increasing the number of nonfiction books we have in our library by adding four books including Bajo la misma estrella.

Students will use the sets of books in order to engage in high-level shared reading and discussion.

They will use the sets of four books as choice books for literature circles. Lastly, they will use the nonfiction independent reading books to read and create projects with.

I am committed to helping my students continue to enjoy picking out a new book of their interest. The more options I can provide in English and Spanish will allow students interest to grow and their love for reading to prosper. In order to do this, they need a vast selection of interesting books. Thank you for helping enrich the options available at their finger tips.
