My students need books, printer, and ink cartridge to complete a project.
Teaching can be challenging at times when you have an academically diverse group of students in the same room. With that being said, my students are special because they are eager to learn but do not have access to the needed resources they need to sharpen their reading skills.
My students are all under the low-socioeconomic/ economically disadvantage umbrella.
Although this school is a Title 1 school with 100% free lunch, computers are available, on a rotation system, but no printers. Of the 28 students in my classroom, 0% have a printer at home. In addition to not having a printer, they are lacking the different genre of books needed to complete a project. How can I prepare these students to be college and career ready if I do not have the tools? How can these students be successful if they are not prepared for the future?
Giving students access to reading materials will better prepare them for state exams, improve their reading scores, and definitely have them college and career ready.
My project is preparing the students to become book reviewers and publishers.
The students will select books from the same author, read, and then type a book review. They will focus on character traits, setting, authors point of view, the difficulty level of the book, and any text features. Next, I will print their final draft and combine all reviews in a binder for other students to read before they select a book. Also, if the books are part of the Accelerated Reading (AR) list, the students will be able to take the AR test. Having access to the books in a series and a printer is necessary for the students to complete their project.
The students will have a plethora of books to choose from during independent reading or partner reading, and to complete homework reading log. The ability to gift these students with items they need will create a domino effect that leads to responsible adults.
