Real-World Texts For Real-World Students
My students need exposure to real-world issues using real-world texts. They need 27 subscriptions to The New York Times Upfront magazine.
"Learning without thinking is labor lost; thinking without learning is dangerous," Confucius believed. In many classrooms today, this alarming concept is a reality. My students are in desperate need of real world texts to use in formulating independent thinking.
My students are at-risk adolescents in a Florida school.
Many of them live in poverty, and are more concerned with surviving rather than reading. Losing family and friends to violence has become a common occurrence for them, as one of my students stated, "I hope for the best and prepare for the worst."
I am requesting a class set of "Upfront", a New York Times publication for high school students. I want to expand their knowledge of the world and give them an exposure to real-world writings. As a result of their experience, I hope they will graduate from high school knowing more than the following , "If don't know which multiple choice answer is right, I should choose 'C'."
I am struggling to help my students graduate from high school.
The majority of my students have been in some kind of intensive reading program since the third grade. By the time they get to me, their eyes have dulled and the dreams of success they had as children, are forgotten. Please help me in giving them the tools they will need in order to become independent, informed adults.
