My Students

“Invisible threads are the strongest ties.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche. My students work hard and once their interest is sparked . . . move out of the way! Eager to engage once they are invested, a typical day in the classroom surrounds making meaningful connections.

My sixth grade students are eager to learn and love to have a say in their own learning.

Many of them come to the classroom with a individual passion that has either been fostered outside or inside of the classroom. They are passionate when given a choice and an ear that will listen. In true middle school fashion, my students love to learn and question a lot of topics. When a topic interests and resonates with them, they love reading, discussing, and making connections. When given the opportunity, my students choose to learn and expand on issues that matter to them. They are typical middle schoolers in that they are searching for themselves but still have a idealistic view on the world. My school helps to advance their search for individuality by incorporating a variety of technology and providing out of school activities that are fueled by student choice.

My Project

In our ever changing world, students need to read and understand more about this time we live in. This nonfiction narrative has high interest and it is a timely choice in America's current state. This book also ties in history and current affairs, making this text an excellent choice for a class novel.

Our school has plently of fiction novels, but we lack great nonfiction books.

This project will help students read an exciting narrative nonfiction and make connections to current events in the world today.

Class novels also build community. This text will help foster community through reading, debate, and asking big questions of this world. Bomb! is just too good of a novel to pass up!
