I work at a title 1 inner city school. The students at my school are African American and Latino/Hispanic (about 85% Latino). My students love to learn. They are inquisitive and enthusiastic. They love all subjects, specially reading, science, math, and music. I have personally ordered a lot of books in all subjects, at various reading levels based on my students' likes (class surveys). When the books arrive everyone gets very excited. I have a checkout system and they get to take the books home or read them in class. I see them looking at the books, browsing, trying to read them, and almost always bragging about how it's their turn to take that book home. Here's the problem. When most of my students sit to actually read the books, the excitement goes away. They try to read, but some lack the basic skills while others struggle with reading comprehension and English language vocabulary. They just can't get through the books (don't read) and quickly loose interest.
