Creating a classroom library that has a wide variety with texts of different themes, reading levels, information, and genres will ensure that my students will always have a text that will best satisfy their learning needs and interests in my resource room. Often times students who struggle with reading feel discouraged attempting an unfamiliar text. They worry about whether their reading speed is too slow or if they will be able to understand the text. When a student can make a connection to what they have been reading in their books to what they are learning in class, it builds confidence and engagement in their learning and ultimately encourages a growth mindset about reading. Graphic novels are a great text selection for students who demonstrate difficulties with reading fluency and comprehension. The pictures embedded in the stories are a great supplement to further the reader's understanding in addition to providing a break in lengthy and dense text. The pictures are also a great way to engage students who genuinely do not enjoy reading. Reading is imperative to students success in the classroom. Informational, fiction, and non-fiction texts are a strong resource to help students build situational background knowledge that they can apply to their learning in their general education classrooms. For example, perhaps the novel "Number the Stars" will further a student's understanding in how Jewish families felt during the holocaust. When a student finds that "just right" book, it can change their perspective on reading and encourage them to continuously try texts to further their learning and understanding.
