My students are interested in current events and enjoy class discussions. The students benefit from reading and writing experiences while making personal connections with books and media.
Students in my class learn best with real life experiences.
I try to incorporate reading and writing in a variety of ways to challenge students and promote academic growth. Integrating curriculum can help motivate students so they truly enjoy learning while mastering important skills.
Language skills are vital for today's students. Reading and writing can be challenging subjects for many of my students. Using award winning, high interest books will help motivate students to read.
The book, Refugee, tells the stories of three children and their families who leave their homes in search of safety. I want my students to learn about the price of freedom. While reading the book, my students will record the costs involved with tangible goods, but then compare to the intangible costs of lives lost and security shattered.
I want my students to realize that everything has a price.
In addition to the monetary price of purchasing boat tickets, buying and selling personal property, and the cost of daily living, it does not compare to the cost of freedom, the security of your family's safety, and an individual's pride.
The books and CDs will greatly impact the learning in my classroom. By using critical thinking and an integrated curriculum, students will gain knowledge through the historical connections described in Refugee. Students will be able to relate to the characters in the book, and will be motivated to learn about the challenges refugees face today.
