The books that I have selected for this project are age-appropriate, and most importantly socially and culturally relevant to my students. I plan on using these books to facilitate small group "book clubs" in my classroom. All of the books will be paired with standards-based lessons that correspond to their regular curriculum and help prepare my students for college, careers, and beyond. These books will allow my students to see themselves in the texts they read. This is crucial to student engagement, as studies have shown that students take a more active role in learning when they can see themselves reflected in what they are studying. These books will help take the curriculum content of our class and make it real and applicable to my students. I am super excited about the opportunity to provide my students with books that they will find meaningful and want to read.
