Goal

Increase literacy within the math classroom. 

 

What will be done with my students

Math classroom library will be used as a supplement within my Math for College Readiness curriculum. Students will explore real life mathematics, learn to understand HOW the math they are learning is used, and build on their intuitive math thought to be transferred into life outside of the classroom. 

 

Benefits to my students

Students will become more confident readers and more confident in the content area. Students will be able to relate mathematics to real life, and transfer those skills learned through reading the books selected. Increased classroom engagement through non-traditional teaching methods in the classroom. Students benefit from non-fictional narratives aligned with florida state standards. 

 

Describe the Students

I have a mix of ESE, ESOL, majority low acheivers in both math and reading. 

 

Budget Narrative

All books will be incorporated into curriculum to support the learning goals.
