My Students

My students are amazing. They are in grades 9 - 12 with reading levels from 1st - 5th grade. They are in my classroom almost all day for the four years that they are in high school. They are like family! Despite the disadvantage that their reading difficulties have on their daily lives they strive to do all of the things that their high school peers do. I have students who have successfully passed driver's training and gotten driver's licenses, some who are gainfully employed in the community, some of them play high school sports, and all of them just want to be a typical teenager! Like any teenager, they get bored with the same old routines and boring book work. We continually strive to mix it up and make learning interesting and fun for each other.

I have learned so much about perseverance and trying new things from my students.

They truly deserve so much more than I can provide them with constant cuts to education. When I look at them and their can-do attitudes I know that society is a better place and has a brighter future than most people see in the news right now!

My Project

The magazines I am requesting will provide critical reading and writing opportunities for students already facing regressive patterns in reading and writing achievement since the closure of schools in March. It is very difficult to find age-appropriate, interesting, and engaging reading materials that my struggling readers actually want to read with topics that draw the most reluctant students in class discussions. Our class has found that connection with Scholastic Scope magazines which are specifically designed for high-interest articles for struggling readers. Since I have the same students all 4 years of high school the other issue is finding new and engaging materials at an economical price every year and Scholastic Magazines are the perfect answer. Last year my students were disappointed when I was unable to provide an annual subscription to Scholastic Action Magazines and they asked to revisit the old issues. I promised them that this year I would find a way to provide current ones. This year with my class divided between virtual education and in person face-to-face education it is even more important to have materials that give all students in my class the same access to engaging reading and writing materials for students with a variety of reading levels. Scholastic Action magazines offer both print and electronic versions for students and also offer a variety of scaffolding and remediation exercises, as well as a variety of reading levels for their articles and activities. Having this subscription this year will make the difference between meeting ALL of my student's reading needs vs. providing a program that meets some of the needs!
