My Students

My students are part of a large, diverse urban school district. Over 85% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. Our school district is experiencing extreme financial cutbacks, but our students continue to find creative and innovative ways to shine. Our school is one of seven middle schools in our city. Our students are encouraged to practice mindfulness, tolerance, and perseverance. Our students have a sense of pride and spirit for their school and aim to achieve academically while, at the same time, practicing solid citizenship.

My Project

Many of my students are struggling readers who find it difficult to find a book that not only challenges them to improve their reading levels, but captures their interest and makes them want to read. They want a book to take them to far away places with characters they can relate to. They want to be dazzled by new concepts, creative ideas, and captivating plots.

They read the first book in the Mazerunner series and fell in love with the characters, the world that they are taken to and the challenges that they face and want to see the story continued in the second book in the series.

They have begged me to introduce Scorch Trials in to the curriculum and demonstrate a genuine, electric interest in continuing this saga.

It is so refreshing to see them excited to read! This reading experience will not only enhance their reading ability , but will reinforce their budding love for books and what they can offer if you find the right one.
