My Students

My students perch on the final phase before becoming high schoolers. They are the kings and queens of their "middle" domain. Yet, much is still to be learned, especially for the group of 8th graders that I serve, who are labeled as "special."

Each of my students faces a major fork in their educational road during this year.

I remain in awe of the challenges they overcome, as they come into their own as young adults and more serious students.

By engaging with literature and writing in ways they may never have experienced in class before, pathways to a larger world emerge. They see themselves in the works that we explore. They become a part of the larger body of work, as they create their own.

My Project

My 8th grade students are all struggling readers. Today's English Language Arts present students with more than just paper-and-ink types of work. Students come to class fearful of the challenges posed by navigating both the assigned reading and the technology on which much of the reading is accessed.

Utilizing actual mice and headphones will allow my students to more easily access the curriculum and their accommodations.

They may appear to be simply listening to music, when really, they are using the text-to-speech function without embarrassment. They will be able to more efficiently access menus and functions on their assignments with a mouse versus a sticky trackpad.

In short, these are simple technologies which will go a long way in providing essential, instructional assistance to my students.
