I teach reading, spelling, and English to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in a low income rural K-8 school where my students are always motivated to learn and are always asking for more information. My students are eager learners!

Living in a rural area that is low income, many of my students have not been out of our local area. My 8th grade class has taken on an interest in historical fiction. I have chosen To Kill a Mockingbird due to its powerful story and Harper Lee's powerful gift of story-telling. Since our district is faced with budget cuts, due to the current economic downturn, there is currently no funding to purchase a class set of books.

I want my students to gain appreciation of the world they live in. I want them to relate to others and what they are going through in their lives. Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird is called a modern classic that deals with courage and compassion. This book is on a reading level of my eighth grade students and would help them grasp a time period in history with some warmth and humor intertwined.

Your support will make it possible for my students to have a better understanding of history, while at the same time being able to experience reading one of the most widely read books in America that focuses on honor, courage, and compassion.
