My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Although the students face many challenges, they are very intelligent and have perseverance. Many go on to junior college and approximately thirty percent go on to four year colleges.

Non-fiction reading skills are essential to the success of students as they prepare to exit high school.

In addition to non-fiction, students are required to read novels and short stories. Writing is also a large portion of our curriculum. In tenth and twelfth grades, college and career readiness skills are crucial to think about when developing lessons.

My Project

One of the main standards in the Common Core State Standards is to read non-fiction material. The "New York Times' Upfront" magazine is perfect for the older student. It contains factual, non-fiction material and supplies activities for the reading. There are charts and graphs which also help in college/career readiness. This subscription will be used as a class set for six classes.

The stand up desk will help those with difficulties sitting in one spot for too long - they will be able to stand and read, thus helping them focus and participate.

Part of the English curriculum includes British literature. "The Time Machine" is an excellent novel that fulfills the requirement.
