My average tenth-grade scholar currently reads at a fifth-grade level --- at this rate, they are at risk of graduating nearly illiterate. Educational research demonstrates that the amount of time children read at their reading level has an enormous impact on their reading ability. Therefore, each of my students will be required to read 100 books (1 book = 100 pages at their reading level) before they leave the tenth grade. That's right. One hundred books. However, reading 100 books with their current access to books will be nearly impossible --- my scholars have nowhere in town to pick up a book because Pine Bluff's public library and school library are both under construction. With these books, my students will have easy access to a variety of high-interest, culturally-responsive books that will allow them to read independently at their personal reading level. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind --- I have watched them the past semester of school read titles just like these. To help them achieve this 100 book goal, they will be given at least 100 minutes of class time each week to read independently, and they will be expected to put in at least 30 minutes of reading time each day outside of school. To build our culture and love for reading, they will give "book talks" on their favorite books and respond to various prompts in a notebook as they read. As an incentive, they will receive awards each marking period which include gift certificates, lunch parties, and certificates of achievement.
