My students are at the academic level and are very interested and excited about reading. We are having a 25 book/year challenge, where students try to read 25 books this school year.
Many of my students come from homes where reading is not a priority.
They also do not have much access to books that they can't get at school. I would love for them to read books that are current and tackle issues that they are actually going through. There are so many books that I think my students would benefit from reading if they could get their hands on them. These are books that will encourage students to become more avid readers.
My goal for my students is to read 25 books this year, and they are ready to take on that challenge. However, my classroom library is lacking books that they will want to read. I need more diverse and current topics for my students to explore.
I want my students to gain insight into other cultures and people who are different than them by exploring new and diverse young adult literature.
My hopes are that my students WANT to read these books and then encourage other students to read them as well. I know that they would love these titles and I would be introducing them to books they probably wouldn't have heard of on their own.
