Goals with CTWP
Throughout this writing program, I hope to change a student’s or parents’ attitude about writing and reading. I’m hoping to close the gap between students and parents and create a relationship between students, parents, and teachers. My goal is to merge reading and writing into the community and allow my students to learn about their community and the people who live there. I want my students to think outside the box and see what they can do and how they can impact someone’s life. Whether it’s writing letters to the elderly or creating a project where it incorporates a different culture for students to learn; I want my students to release their creativity and be open-minded when listening/reading others’ stories and reflect on the differences between their lives and the persons their reading. Another goal I hope to accomplish is to learn more strategies and techniques to help my students learn. I hope to learn more about how I can continue to include the community and writing in my classroom even after the program.
