Out of My Mind But in Our Hands....

My students need a class set of "Out of My Mind" so that we can read the story together and develop empathy toward each others struggles.

My Students

I teach at a Title 1 school with a high level of poverty, where we are struggling to close the achievement gap.

I teach 6th grade Reading and Writing Workshop in an inclusion classroom.

This is a shock for some of our students who have little experience with these type of students and have trouble relating to them and including them.

We start out the year reading the novel "Out of My Mind" in order to show that everyone has strengths and weaknesses. The empathy and awareness that my students have after reading this novel is palpable!

My Project

"Out of My Mind" is a story of eleven year old Melody, a student with cerebral palsy, who takes on the challenge of being "normal." It is a journey of self understanding and empathy with so many teachable moments. Melody is a tribute to disabled kids who struggle, those who are misunderstood, the people who look away, who pretend they don't exist or don't know what to say when they encounter someone so different.

Help put this book in my students hands, creating engaged readers!

Students can follow along in the book, tracking with their eyes and absorbing more material then through simply listening.
