We need more relevant curriculum in our schools


Whenever my sixth graders enter my English classroom, I’m struck by both their boundless energy and their lack of self-consciousness. My students give me a high-five in the morning. One of them always insists that I raise my hand as high as I can so that she can show off just how high she can jump.

To protect her privacy, I’ll call her Jasmine. I was surprised that despite her unadulterated joy in school, her reading skills fell far short when she came to my class. She was multiple years behind and I was determined to help her rise to the challenge of reading by ensuring that she can see herself in her schoolwork.
