My Students

My students are bright eyed and eager students from an awesome, but underserved, community in Northwest Philadelphia! Everyday my students arrive ready and willing to think and discuss our texts and the challenging themes they present. This year, we will focus on issues of social justice, discrimination, life as an adolescent and how to relate with others. We hope to explore the world, each other, and our hopes and dreams through our year together but need some help gathering the materials that could help us! Our school has an amazing team and a lovely outdoor garden but hasn’t yet been brought into the twenty- first century with updated technology.

My Project

Actionable Insights. Engaging Instruction. iReady makes the promise of differentiated instruction a practical reality for teachers and students. It was designed to get students excited about learning, and to support teachers in the challenge of meeting the needs of all learners. However, while our class has some the Chromebooks needed to use this amazing online resource, we do not have enough nor do we have headphones or space to set up shop.

With more chromebooks, headphones, and round tables my students will be able to successfully listen and engage with the content that is being delivered to them.

As they progress through the program, so will their understanding of fundamental and complex literacy skills and strategies.
