My Students

My students are from all over Maryland. We are fortunate enough to be able to have a diverse set of students. Reading is very important in our school environment and we value literacy and writing very heavily. Reading and education can take you to places where you may not ordinarily be able to reach alone.

We have a unique school community that allows us to have incredibly close relationships between students and school staff.

We have many clubs and students are very close with their counselors and teachers. Our school community allows our students to become scholars and amazing adults.

My Project

This project is in order to get reading resources for my students. My students tend to come to my school several grade levels behind their current grades average reading level. In order to help excite them regarding reading, we have created an elective course entitled, Zombies: The real and the metaphorical. These books and poster paper will help us to improve our reading abilities and demonstrate what we have learned creatively.

This course is designed to improve students reading ability by using very high interest books in an engaging classroom topic.

Books by Jonathan Maberry and Justina Ireland will help our students to improve their reading and writing skills, while engaging in interesting and relevant academic discussion. The first half of the class is the real Zombie where we will explore science fiction reading skills. The next part of the course is the metaphorical zombie, where we will explore groups or people who have bee outcasted or " Zombified" by society.
