My students, 10th and 11th graders, attend a public high school with a 50% poverty rate. We are a small school of less than 600 and approximately 50% of the students are open enrollment, leading to less funding from the state.
We have a diverse population of students, as many students from the big city seek our school for greater opportunities.
When given the right tools, my students are excited to learn and grow. They are amazing! They are the future.
In my classes, students are allowed to choose the books they want to read. Providing students with text that motivate them to want to read, not only builds life long readers, but also prepares them for a world filled with literacy.
These texts help to foster life literacy skills that will benefit my students indefinitely.
Everyone knows that reading is an important skill, so as an educator, I want to provide my students with as many opportunities to read as possible. These new titles will enhance our classroom library and give my students the motivation they need to read great books.
As we continue to build our classroom library, it is important to have a variety of genres and themes for the students to explore. J.K. Rowling once said " “If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.” I want to make sure my students never suffer that fate!
