Our students have been severely impacted by the pandemic and struggle with the ripple effects, such as our librarian having to cover classes due to no substitutes; when our library is closed. kids don’t have access to books. Classroom libraries ensure kids have high-quality reading material. My library is based on the honor system. Kids borrow books as needed and return when finished. There is a constant need to replenish books, especially now, as kids transition between in-person school and distance learning. Beloved books get shared and passed around; I explain that if a book doesn’t make its way back to the shelf, that means the book is beloved by a teenager and has a new home! One of the most important learning objectives we have concerns reading and writing fluency. We need students to recognize high-frequency words and read grade-level text fluently, then demonstrate comprehension through their writing and discussions. We accomplish those goals by using chart paper and gallery walks to make our thinking transparent as we hang our chart paper around our room. Students can “see” the discussion in every section and learn from everyone, not just students enrolled in their class. The target population for this project is all of my middle schoolers, and we will see several outcomes from it. Teenagers read more when they have access to engaging material. They will experience improved mental health when they read and write about stories that reflect their lived experiences. Students will make connections between each other and the world around them and create a closer, more cohesive sense of community. Families will experience relief from the pressure to supply high-quality reading material to their students during a time when resources are scarce and prioritized for basic needs.
