My Project

My students yearn for occasions to read something enlightening, to listen, to speak, to write, to create... I strive to make every lesson plan I write to include each of these. I look for enrichment materials to challenge my students and foster a love of learning; this new set of class novels fit the bill.

I teach exceptional learners.

I hope to collect class sets of novels that will challenge them. I'd like them to be able to discuss and analyze text on a deeper level. This project will give them an introduction to Steinbeck and a vehicle for improving their critical thinking.

I am lucky to be working with such extraordinary youngsters. They impress me daily.
