My Students

I have a total of 116 students. They are comprised of the lowest 25% in the school. Instead of taking an elective of their choice, they have to take my class because they are in the lowest 25%.

Motivation is what makes my students "Rock Out" I like to keep it fun while they are learning.

Every day they tell me that my class is their favorite even though it takes their elective away! Each day we get closer to our goal.

My Project

Reading fluently is the ability to read accurately, smoothly and with expression! As educators we recognize that fluency is an important aspect of reading.

Fluency is the most critical building block of reading as it is directly related to comprehension.

Using this camera and tripod, students can record themselves while reading or presenting projects. This will help students listen for tone or voice and thereby be able to understand content more clearly.

Recording each other as we present will also help students work on their posture as well as their delivery. Students are sometimes shy and won't look at their peers when presenting!
