Remember reading that first book that helped you develop a love of reading? Do you remember those integrated lessons during math or history class?
My students are from one of the poorest and most violent cities in the country.
Every day they strive to broaden their horizons and reach for the stars. For many, school is the only safe haven they know. I work to instill in them that there is a bigger world out there than the one they see every day, and that they matter, and always have a safe place to explore the world around them in our classroom.
With this project I will be able to split my class in half by ability level. I will have one group work independently on laptops and the other group will work with teacher. Halfway through the period I would switch groups.
The laptops will allow me to use Achieve 3000 in my classroom.
This is online program that students are able to do High School content for Social Studies at their own reading level. I have several students on second to fourth grade reading levels. This will help enable students to read and answer comprehension questions on their own reading level. This could be a "difference maker" for my students.
