Research shows that students are engaged when they have a choice in what they read. Independent reading is a focus of my classes. While we do spend time reading shorter texts together (poems, essays, and articles) and study at least two novels together, the goal is always to have students read more than they have in the last year or last month. A classroom library puts books in my students' hands as soon as they walk in the door. I am looking for small sets of contemporary books, both fiction and nonfiction, that will engage my students with the issues, ideas, and questions of our time.
