My Students

My school is made up of about 100 6-8th graders. We are a student-driven, project-based learning, multi-aged, STEM middle school. I have all of these students at some point through the day for literacy or math. My students love to be independent with their learning and book choices. They are very curious learners that love to be in a STEM environment. They are very interested in learning about cultures other than their own and love to do this through literature.

My Project

Picture books to don't get enough credit. They are a great way to teach literacy and social skills to students of all ages. There are so many books out there that go in-depth into the skills that middle schoolers are expected to know.

Picture books are a great way to introduce new topics and ideas from a variety of cultures to students.

They are also a great way to give students an entire story each time you see them. This gives teachers an opportunity to learn literacy skills in an authentic way that they can see repeated across multiple stories each day instead of just one story that takes multiple days or weeks to read through as a class.
