School: Jake L Meachum Jr High School, Millington, MI
Planned By: Marie Koch
Original Author: Marie Koch, Millington

A. My students are having a difficult time reading. Fluency is one reason students lack reading skills. Fluency is learned by practicing oral reading. The students will practice reading books to the cameras for the preschooler and then we will send the videos to the preschool classroom.

B. My classes write letters to the soldiers overseas. I would like the students to write their letters and read them to the soldiers. This is another great way to practice fluency. We can send the information via the internet.

C. The students will document activities around the building. We will create interview questions to ask the participants at the events. We will post the videos on the school web site.

D. My classes will be fifth and sixth grade students who are at-risk or special needs. There will be 30 students working on this project.
*Students will learn how to operate the camera.
*Students will become comfortable reading to the camera.
*Students will edit and share the information they record.
*Students will increase fluency as they do the activities.
*Students will increase their confidence talking to others.
*Students will improve their communication skills.
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
We will be combining Language Arts, technology and social skills.
I'd love to make copies of the students reading their stories to give to the library and their families.
