My students need a class set of intential, relevant, literacy resources to assist them in growing their literacy skills in reading and writing.
As a teacher in a Title 1 Charter School, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide a start to motivating students to achieve their goals as a health leader in their community.
My students are determined, focused, and motivated to become something great.
Many of them are being raised in single parent households, function as the head of household, fighting gang activity, or have immigrant parents that work in the fields, and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during their time in my program and provide them with a sense of belonging and that they are to be proud of upon graduation.
The class set of literacy resources that focus on real world relevant issues will be used every day in my advisory period and literacy intervention period (same students). My students have not been exposed to a literacy intervention program that uses relevant materials, but with your donation, they will be able to improve thier literacy (reading and writing) skills using content that means something to them. With the transition to Common Core reading and writing, students have been given larger, real-world problems that require preparing for college and career at an earlier age. Having a books that examine topics of divorce, gang activity, and disability, will bring relevancy to my students. During this crucial year, we can begin to process our student to being able to read at or above grade level.
Giving low-income students with broken backgrouds access to these literacy resources is an investment in their future.
These literacy resources on divorce, gang activity, poor preformance in school, and disability allow students to tackle larger and more literacy skills that they lack, which will prepare them for college-level work.
