Don't great students deserve to be exposed to great literature? I teach 9th and 10th grade Literature at a high school in New York City. Our school has a diverse group of students, many who come from high-needs households and Junior High Schools. Many of them have never had the opportunity or means to get their hands on good literature. Due to budget cuts in NYC public schools, we find ourselves looking for help in purchasing new novels for use in our literature classrooms. I know that if I get the chance to teach this powerful text, it will change the way students look at reading, I just need the chance to do so! There is no joy and inspiration in digging through a book room to choose what you teach--the kids deserve to be taught the right book for them.
