A key value in my classroom is student choice. I allow students 20 minutes of reading each time we meet. I want to ensure that students don't view reading as a chore, but recognize reading as a great source of joy and knowledge and something they delight in doing on their own. I have put together a list of books that will certainly hook even the most reluctant readers. I teach at a school just outside Richmond Virginia and we have one of the most diverse student bodies in the state. We have kids from 65 different countries and a wide array of economic situations. It is my goal to expand my classroom library to better serve this population. I've managed to assemble a small classroom library, but too often my books are all checked out. I am hoping to add more variety to my classroom collection and to add titled sure to hook even my most reluctant readers.
