Goal

It is my goal to secure the needed supplies for my English I students to ensure opportunities for success. We are using Interactive Notebooks this year to increase engagement, and we are in need of the supplies to make that happen! 

 

What will be done with my students

These supplies will be used throughout the year as we build and maintain our Interactive Notebooks. These notebooks will serve as a "study guide" or "student-made textbook" to reflect the standards we have covered and the skills we have mastered throughout the year. These notebooks are kept in the classroom and are designed so that students are able to look back on standards we have already covered to refresh their memories and also to keep a log of all of the different activities we have completed and how they are each tied to the overall standards of the course.

Supplies needed include: Notebook paper, composition notebooks, pencils and pencil erasers, colored pencils, markers, tape, crayons, markers, index cards, construction paper, 3 prong pocket folders, highlighters, pencil sharpeners, scissors, and sticky notes.

The composition notebooks are the foundation and the other supplies are used for various activities we put in our notebooks. In addition, the 3 prong pocket folder will be used to make a writing portfolio for each student. The students will keep their writing pieces in this folder as a representation of both the process our writing goes through before it's published as well as a place to highlight the hard work the students have put in!
 

 

Benefits to my students

Approximately 150 regular English I students (5 classes) will benefit from these supplies throughout the year. The expected outcome is that each student will have an Interactive Notebook that they enjoy using because they had access to all of the supplies necessary to be proud of their finished product. These notebooks will lead to student growth on the FSA as well as increased student ownership of the learning process and the work produced.  

 

Describe the Students

My students are mostly level 1 and 2 readers. Many of them lack the confidence or desire to dive in to the nonfiction, higher-level texts that we now use in the English classrooms. I also have a large population of ESE as well as ELL students. I attempt to bridge the gap between where they are and where they need to be by the time they leave me by taking an approach that includes engaging learning opportunities. I attempt to hook them in and foster a love for reading and writing that they may not even have known existed. Interactive Notebooks allow these students the chance to build their self-confidence in hopes of challenging themselves during their time in high school to reach past what they thought they were capable of achieving.
