The book list available to my 9th grade students needs an update. As a teacher, I am asking my students to analyze texts, engage with them, and analyze complex characters. It is hard to motivate them to accomplish these tasks when the book choices for whole class readings are underwhelming to them and not relevant to today's society. I recently completed research on the effects of using contemporary literature in the classroom. Enormous successes in the classrooms are being had by teachers using literature that is contemporary, relevant, and that is centralized around a social justice issue. The book I am requesting for this project, The Hate U Give, is an engaging story with multiple racial perspectives, complex/dynamic characters, and a fantastic connection to racial injustice issues that many of my students hear about every day either from friends, family, or the media.
