My Students

Our students are from a small rural area. Our school is one campus with grades PreK-twelve and less than 30 students in most grades. I teach students in 7th through 12th grade, and like teachers in small schools, our students also wear many hats. Many are involved in many extra-curricular activities, take college courses as they enter high school, and likely help take care of younger siblings or other family members in addition to being secondary students. This is what is most impressive about these students. I am involved with the academic extracurricular students who compete against students from all across the state in academic competitions in speech, debate, STEM, ELA, social studies, business, and more. They extend their learning in the classroom through these activities.

My Project

Our students compete in contests where they present stories and poems orally to a judge and sometimes an audience. To find the perfect selections for each student to read requires an extensive library for them to choose from. They also read different selections through the year and each year that they return. They read these books, and if they like them, they then choose selections from the book to read aloud in competitions against students across the state. For the performances to be top notch, the books must speak to the student. For this reason, we have compiled a set of books the students would like to read and consider for future competitions.
