Goal

To increase reading engagement with low performing or struggling reading students.  

 

What will be done with my students

I would like to use IPads for online reading projects. Many student are resistant to reading traditional books, but can be enticed to read on electronic devices. There are many online apps that can be used to support reading, and they can be used for our online Reading Plus program. This will be an ongoing implementation for my students.
I would also like to add some high interest novels to my class library. 

 

Benefits to my students

I teach 9th grade intensive reading. All of my students are below grade level and I have several students in the 504, ESE, or ELL categories. These online programs are designed to help support all students, but have adaptations that are especially helpful to these groups. They can be used in addition to existing programs to support efforts to increase their reading ability.
The new novels will hopefully grab the attention of reluctant readers.  

 

Describe the Students

Approximately 52% of my 100 students are ESE, ELL, or have 504s. All of them are low performers. Some have reading levels as low as 1st grade. Many of them have lost any motivation to continue learning. I hope that by providing interesting books and ways to learn that more of them become engaged and increase their reading ability, thus becoming more successful in all of their classes and beyond into college.
