My Students

I teach English/Language Arts in a special education setting. These students are considered the super sub group in our school, and they come from extremely low economic households. They are all struggling readers who need assistance with reading fluency and reading comprehension. Each one of them has their own unique struggles at school and also at home. However, they come to school every day, ready to learn new things. Unfortunately, because they all struggle in reading, this makes learning in other classes difficult as well.

My Project

These materials will help me set up a special place in our classroom for students to sit and enjoy their independent reading. They will be able to bring food and snacks while relaxing with a good book. The comfy chair will be for relaxation, and the bookshelf for displaying novels for independent reading. The idea is to give students a quiet and relaxing environment that promotes independent reading. I want students to enjoy reading, and I believe having a comfortable and inviting place for reading will draw students in for more independent reading activities. We've already started getting the area ready, but need a few more things to finish it off.
