My Students

I teach sixth and seventh grade English Language Arts to our magnet students. The majority of my students are gifted and talented or meet the requirements for a higher level and more rigorous curriculum.

My students love to explore through hands-on activities.

I am always looking for ways to engage my students through cross-curricular activities and lessons. They always meet my high expectations and are always ready for something new! They are always willing to learn, so I am excited to introduce them to a cross-curricular novel study!

My Project

I am looking to offer my students an engaging novel study on "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind." However, my school does not have a class set of this novel in our library. Through reading this novel, my students will complete a final project where they are to build their own windmill in groups through their selected materials. Not only will my students have access to a STEM project, but they will also be able to explore topics related to social studies, science, and math through this novel study. I am excited to see how ELA can be cross-curricular through this novel study.
