Teenagers+Books=Love of Teaching

Help me give my students the literacy must haves to create enriching lessons to use as part of their internships, volunteer opportunities, and our YouTube channel of read-alouds for children.

My Students

Our students are the first cohort group to begin the new Principles of Teaching program at our high school. Bayside Institute for Teaching and Education is the 2nd program of its kind in the district! This amazing group of students are pursuing a profession in the field of education while still in high school. They challenge themselves with their academics and are earning college credits as part of the academy. Upon graduation they will take an industry certification exam that will allow them to be Instructional Assistants so they can work in classrooms in our district while pursuing their education degree.

This group of students want to impact the future of education in our country.

This group of teenagers will complete a minimum of 200 hours of volunteering/internships as part of the academy requirements. As part of their leadership development, they will host guest speakers and attend conferences and competitions. These change makers are following a path to become intelligent and innovative educators!

My Project

My academy students will use these books as part of the content based lessons they create in their Curriculum and Instruction class. They are then to be shared with their internship classes and volunteer groups. As my high schoolers are learning how to create lesson plans, differentiating instruction, leveling text, addressing curriculum through types of activities, etc, they can use the books as part of their lessons.

The love of reading cannot be taught without having a diverse, full library.

As my high school students learn how to be educators, they will be sharing a love of reading with a new generation.
