A Book for Every Season/A Book for Every Reason: Read!
My students need an inspirational classroom library full of both classic and contemporary literature like Percy Jackson, The Hunger Games, and Matched, as well as high interest topics to get them reading, reading, and reading some more!
Our school - a high poverty inner city school - consists of more than 1500 students from all over the world. We are one of the only comprehensive high schools left in our district, with more than 75% of our students speaking more than one language. Unfortunately, many of our students live at or below the poverty line, so many of our students work to help support their families in addition to going to school. My hard-working students need a solid education in order to improve conditions within their own lives.
My students are looking for exciting books to read. While we have a school library, many of the books are outdated and do not pique their interest at this time. Our classroom library has not been updated in over ten years.
By donating to our classroom library, you will help bring back the fun and enjoyment of reading, while helping to increase student literacy and lexile levels.
Each student actively participated in choosing the titles they were most interested in reading. Your donation will help them get their book wish fulfilled; they will all get an opportunity to read what appeals to them, and share their choices with their peers.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
