I'm a second-year teacher at a school in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Our school has about 1,000 students, and it was named "A School In Need of Improvement" (SINI) this year. I am blessed with 23 bilingual (English & Spanish) 2nd graders who love to learn and work together. We would like to improve the communication in our grade by launching a 2nd grade newsletter to inform the grade of events happening in our classes. The News Team will publish a newsletter containing interviews with class visitors, teachers, administrators, and 2nd grade students. Also, the newsletter will describe the shows and projects in the works throughout the 2nd grade classrooms. The News Team will start with about 10 2nd graders. The team will be responsible for gathering topics, writing and editing articles, taking photographs, computer layout, printing, and dissmeination of the final product to all the second grade classes...(with some guidance from their teacher of course!) For this project, we will need a voice recorder, cassettes, a PC scanner/printer machine, and a digital camera. This project will be an ongoing effort by students to celebrate their school community. It will improve their Spanish and English literacy, interpersonal skills, and computer knowledge. The students will be proud of what they can achieve and how they can impact others.
