My Students

Our district is a K-8 district. We currently have 190 students enrolled between pre-k and eighth grade. Our class sizes range from sixteen to twenty nine students. I spend my days working to inspire a love of reading to students in 5th through 8th grade. Most of my students come from low income families. Reading is not something that is always encouraged at home, so I must work that much harder to promote reading during the school day. Every book that a student finishes is a small victory for me. Already this year, I have seen some students grow an entire year on their reading level. My students truly are amazing.

My Project

My 8th graders are in need of some new class book sets. Since many of my students do not have a natural love for reading, I make it my mission to ignite that flame by providing students with books that they find interesting.

Fever 1793 is a fictional book about the plague as seen through the eyes of a teenage girl.

My students showed interest in the topic at the beginning of the school while working on a reading comprehension paper. We will be comparing the fictional book to a non-fiction book about the plague.

Code Orange is a story of bioterrorism as told through the eyes of a teenage boy. The book facilitates many discussion opportunities ranging from terrorism to infectious disease.

Both of these books would be used to tie in history and science. They create opportunities for students to enhance their reading skills, practice using their reading strategies, and incorporate other content areas all while enjoying the book.
