My Students

I teach in a Title I school which means that a majority of my students come from low-income families. Half of our students are open enrolled which means the school receives less funding from the state for their seats. While there is some variance year to year, I typically teach mostly juniors and freshmen. Every year juniors take the ACT exam - which is an incredibly important exam.

Even though they face many challenges, my students can succeed.

With the right opportunities and resources made available to them, I believe they will advance!

My Project

The goal with this project is to get engaging, relevant books in my students' hands. There is much data that shows that students are more likely to make gains in literacy if they are interested in the books they are reading. With these titles, students will participate in literature circle style discussions in order to engage in rigorous, lively conversation about their reading.

I plan to use these two titles as part of my unit on social justice.

In this unit students tackle difficult questions such as: in our society who makes decisions? Topics such as these can be challenging, but are often of high interest and worthy of classroom discourse.
