My Students

My students are enthusiastic but often lack the motivation to work on their classwork. They also need support with English speaking and listening. Most are English Learners and are struggling in their English Language Arts class.

My students come from a diverse school in a large city.

Part of the school is a magnet with students from all over the city. My students, however, are comprised mainly of residential students from the local low-income neighborhood. Most are English Learners, as well.

My Project

The students are reading William Shakespeare's The Tempest. We need extra book copies of the play as well as an audio version on CD to listen to. A DVD of the movie and a small table will complete the materials for the unit. All together, they will allow the 10th grade students to read the original play, hear professionals read it, and watch the movie version. Shakespeare can be challenging to read and understand, but all three ways of interacting with the play helps students. This play is new to the 10th grade textbook and the students can use support for it. We also need a folding table on which to organize The Tempest materials.
