A Novel Idea- Books at Every Student's Independent Level

My students need books at several different reading levels in across various genres to improve their literacy.

My Students

Remember finding a really great book in your library or classroom? Remember the feeling you got after falling in love with the characters. What if there weren't enough books in your class for you to have that experience?

My students are from all over the world.

They have very diverse likes and dislikes and varying degrees of ability. My school is very large with over 1,300 students using our small school library. Students often cannot checkout books on their level that interest them because we don't have enough books to accommodate their needs.

My Project

My students will be reading these books and analyzing them for plot structure, character development, inferring meaning, point of view, and bias. Students will have a book checkout time in my classroom library so they can read the books and have quick access to many choices.

Students will be exposed to books and great literature that would otherwise be inaccessible to them.

Students will be able to read books at their level and on topics that specifically interest them to make them into life long learners and readers.
