In my English Language Development class, many of my 7th and 8th grade students are below a 5th grade reading level. This will impact their academic potential here in middle school, and reduce their likelihood of graduating from high school (statistically, more than 75% of my 8th graders will drop out of high school). To improve my class' reading and writing skills and reduce their future dropout rate, I want to create interactive binders with each student. These binders will benefit the students, their families, and my capacity to provide personal feedback. Using interactive binders will allow students to assemble a portfolio of their work. Not only will they be able to personally track progress and target areas for improvement, but the binders will also help them organize their essays in preparation for the upcoming transition to high school. The interactive component of the binders involves my personal feedback. With 34 students in the class, and more students expected to join before the end of the semester, it is difficult to provide each student with adequate individual feedback. The interactive binders will allow me to efficiently assess students' progress and provide constructive and individual responses in the binder on a regular basis. The binders will also benefit the students' families, who will be able to peruse the binders regularly to get an idea of the projects and assignments their student has completed throughout the year. Ultimately, the value of developing these portfolios will extend beyond our English Language Development class and develop students' organizational skills necessary for successful high school and college experiences.
