My Students

I teach in an urban school in a very large school district. Each school in our city has its own budget based on many different factors. There are 1.1 million students in the district.

My students are classified as Gifted/Talented, by taking a city-wide exam and have varying intellectual abilities.

90% are of Asian Ethnicity, while the other 10% are of other ethnicities. Due to the sheer number of students, the maximum is 32, space becomes quite limited in the size of the classroom that I have.

My Project

Students love to write every day. They are using language to show, not tell their audience stories, information, and other genres of writing.

In order for students to elevate their writing, using a thesaurus can take their writing to new heights.

We want to teach students to use sophisticated language to show their audience their imagination, information that they learned, as well as, share thoughts, ideas and thinking.

A thesaurus is a tool that students can use on a daily basis to take their writing to the next level.

Students can work in partnerships to share all of the wonderful words included in a thesaurus.
