My Students

Many of my students come to school everyday to be in a safe environment surrounded by people who care about them and to have access to two hot meals daily. My students attend an urban high school with over eleven hundred students. At our school, sixty-seven percent of the students are minorities and sixty-nine percent are economically disadvantaged.

My ultimate goal is for my students to develop an interest in reading for enjoyment.

My reading intervention courses are designed to re-teach foundational reading skills and comprehension strategies, improve oral and silent reading fluency and improve vocabulary.

My Project

My high school students work very hard to reach their weekly reading goals. I like to celebrate my students' achievements as often as possible. One of the ways to motivate my students is to offer them incentives such as visiting the "prize box," which contains various items to encourage them to continuously improve their reading comprehension, fluency and vocabulary. The most sought-after prizes from this school year and years past have been snacks, especially spicy chips. If visiting the prize box gets the students to read, I'm all for it!

Offering the students rewards to improve their reading is a great way to keep them motivated until they feel confident in their reading, at which time they will hopefully develop intrinsic motivation to succeed.
