My Students

I have a total of 116 students. They are comprised of the lowest 25% in the school. Instead of taking an elective of their choice, they have to take my class because they are in the lowest 25%.

My students are some of the greatest students in the school.

They don't feel this way because they have to take this remedial class.

Every day they tell me that my class is their favorite even though it takes their elective away! Each day we get closer to our goal.

My Project

The books that I have chosen for my class will help them to connect problems and issues that are going on in the world around them.

Whenever there is a text to self-connection, the reading becomes more meaningful to the students.

This is a story about teenagers and racism, police brutality and activism! During Black History month we had speakers come into the classroom and talk about these very topics! What a way to bring these very serious topics full circle.

I know my students will get a lot out of reading this book and sharing ways to make the world a better place in their eyes!
