I teach three seventh grade general education classes this year. Each student that enters my room is given many opportunities to learn and grow throughout the year. I strive to make my classroom a safe haven for my students and a home away from home!
Without funding, the simplest of supplies slip through the cracks and adding classroom novels isn't even an option.
The school district has suffered so many budget cuts that I am left with no money to purchase the novels that I desire to share with my students.
My students will be able to go back in time to witness one of our nations greatest tragedies. I plan on using the book as a read-aloud and springboard to a writing activity. Each student will have a copy to follow along, and then we will engage in lively discussion about the content. At the end, I would like the students to pretend to be reporters from the scene and write an online article about the Kennedy shooting.
This young adult novel provides vivid pictures, diagrams, and notes to help the students better understand the topic.
Since my room is an inclusive classroom and many of my students are visual learners, this book format is perfect for them. The audio will help to level the playing field so that no matter what grade level the students are reading on, they will all understand it.
