A Class Set of a Classic
My students need a class set of 45 books to read during the second semester of their freshman year. Lord of the Flies is an important book and is a staple!
The kids in my classroom hate to read. It is my hope that allowing them to read this particular book, one with anarchy and murder and mystery, will help them to learn to love to read as much as I do.
This school is tiny.
It is a 1A school with little to no focus on education. Football is King in this town. With no hope of college, many of these students only learn what their high school teachers choose to teach them. It's important that they get all of the attention and support they can get before they move on.
This book is going to change these kids' outlook on reading. I hope that by having them read Lord of the Flies in their ninth grade year, it'll instill in them at least a curiosity to check out books in the future. 45 books will be enough for each student to take home a book and help them to learn to appreciate the feel of it in their hands. The storyline and characters will capture the students' interest.
Your donation will help these kids get to take home a book for a few weeks, to read it, and to appreciate it.
Otherwise, we'll be forced to use the textbook for mere excerpts of novels and the students will never be able to experience the feel and smell and pleasure of a book without your help.
