My Students

My students are kids who need help passing their Texas State Assessment. They failed their assessment last year, so this year, they have lost an elective and have to take an additional math or reading class to help them prepare.

I know this is not their favorite subject so I try to make my class as fun and interesting as I can.

Kids can learn so much through reading. I want to provide them with as many opportunities to put their reading skills to use as I can.

My Project

"The Lord of the Flies" novel is both high interest as well as classic literature. I teach mostly boys and this book will speak directly to their lives in middle school. I want to teach how literature crosses over into the entertainment industry and how it applies to our everyday life experiences. "The Lord of the Flies" is a great example of how literature infiltrates our pop culture.

The Scholastic Math Magazines will provide my students with opportunities to read in math.

It will show them how the material we are learning, transfers to their everyday lives.

Both sets of reading materials can be used again and again for years to come.
