Discover how to transform your age old "remedial reading" classroom into an engaged learning environment using technology and/or Project Based Learning (PBL), differentiating the learning opportunities and experiences for your struggling learners. I employ technology tools and use real news articles and video clips, inspiring students to develop a long lost skill of note taking, for real life relevant subject matter. I immerse my students into the topic through engaging them with real-time learning. A topic like The Great Pacific Garbage Patch began with the reading of one article and evolved into reading four articles, developed their note taking craft and listening comprehension, developed their reading comprehension, improved their writing skill development, and created a pathway to an art connected to text project. The news articles then moved us into a video documentary and various real-time news articles related to spin-off topics about "plastics." This one project, which was relevant to students in their everyday life, was so skill and topic embedded, they became mini experts on plastics and disposal of plastics. Any current topic can be designed into a rich and full exploration where students are seemingly unaware they are learning! That is the best kind of learning: the painless and exciting kind! Build students' basic skills, knowledge of the world around them, and literacy as they grab onto and formulate opinions about real world topics.
