With our APS CLL Grow. Lead. Transform. Mini-Grants, my goal is to utilize high-interest, relatable books to engage my students in reading and also critical thinking. It is my hope that the chosen selections allow the boys to be reflective of their own lives and the decisions that they have made and will make in the future. Each text tells the story of a generation of boys trying to find their way in a hostile world. Many of my students can relate to these books. Also, they can help our students to overcome any obstacles in their lives when they make the right choice and accept the support of others. These books share some powerful lessons about life's purpose, self-discovery, risk-taking, and how one can find his own path to success. One of the novels I selected is a true story about two young boys with the same name, born blocks apart, within a year of each other. Both grew up fatherless in similar Baltimore neighborhoods. They had difficult childhoods, hung out on street corners with their friends and both ran into trouble with the police; however, one grew up to be a Rhodes Scholar, a decorated veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader, while the other one ended up as a convicted murderer serving a life sentence. I am so excited​ about getting these books because my book club members have been very enthusiastic about reading. We will use our book club meeting time to participate in our school district new reading initiative "Race2Read Program." I know that the boys will appreciate this grant as we just finished reading "The Hate U Give." They were engaged throughout the entire study of the book and left wanting to read more. I want them to continue to read high interest books.
