Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

My students are primarily Latino attending a school in a low income neighborhood. Many of them will be a first generation high school graduate and college student. My students have a thirst for knowledge and they are amazed by the classic literature we read as a class because this is their first exposure to it. They would benefit from being able to have materials to help them read, annotate, and answer questions.

The pandemic robbed my students of being able to read and act out Shakespeare plays together in class.

Now that we are on campus once again, students are ready to engage in deep class discussions and write thoughtful reflections on what they read. The types of complex discussion we are able to have in my class are unique to school and is not something a majority of these students experience outside of school. My goal is for my students to not only find success in their reading and writing but to be able to discuss ideas from the text and learn how to express their opinions thoughtfully and intelligently.

My Project

My students will be able to work collaboratively to make demonstrations of their thinking, notes on texts, and collaborative analysis writing assignments.

Students need to learn how to work in a collaborative environment on writing and analysis to be successful in a 21st century world.

Having baskets to keep materials at tables allows for easy sanitization and minimizes sharing in order to keep things covid safe. Students will be able to see their writing clearly and visibly on chart paper so they can know how best to improve their writing skills. Having fresh markers for their mini whiteboards will also allow for students to easily answer questions, take quick notes, and make plans for their writing and projects.
