I need the professional development materials such as Texts and Lessons for Teaching Literature and 180 DAYS: Two Teachers and the Quest to Engage and Empower Adolescents to increase learning and engagement in my class.
I teach English Language Arts to students who are located in a high poverty area. Most of my students are struggling readers and writers. However, my students work hard at learning and achieving the reading and writing goals that each student has set for themselves.
My students learn best when materials are engaging and culturally relevant.
With the materials that I have selected, I will learn how to best provide my students with engaging and meaningful reading and writing opportunities.
Reading and learning are fundamental skills for students and teachers alike. Acquiring professional resources, such as these texts, will allow teachers to learn and grown in his or her chosen profession. With these resources, I can work collaborate with my peers and continue to grow as a teacher in English Language Arts, and our school culture and students will benefit in the process because I will increase my knowledge in using materials that are culturally relevant as well use materials that are engaging. Engaged students learn more and retain knowledge which will allow my students to become better readers and writers.
