What will be done with my students

We will be learning and applying different reading comprehension strategies daily as we work our way through the novels. Students will rehearse oral fluency and also teamwork skills. Most importantly, this project will help students empathize with others.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students will increase oral fluency and comprehension while gaining insight into the perspective of others.
