My Project

My students are enthusiastic about the Mystery Genre and want to read these types of books for a future Book Club. I want to build a collection of high-interest Mystery titles to engage my students in reading. With your help, I can create this collection of books and honor the request of my students. Mystery is a hot genre for middle grade students and I want to have the books on hand to meet their needs. Research has shown that students gain comprehension skills when they are actively involved in choosing the types of material they will read. Make this Mystery unit a reality in my classroom.
