My Students

We are located in a college town in a rural area where a mix of families live and work. Our student body is diverse in terms of socio-economic opportunities and our families' ability to promote reading at home. Our school library is constantly bustling with students reading, working on homework, playing games together, and socializing.

You never know what's going to happen on a given day at our eighth and ninth grade junior high.

Our students are smart, funny, and always entertaining. They are enthusiastic about reading and their education in general.

My Project

The Sequoyah Book Award helps promote reading in our school by providing a list of the best books of the year for young people to explore. Students who read three titles off the list are eligible to vote for the winner when the polls open each March. The fact that this award is student-chosen gives students a sense of ownership and agency that encourages them to develop decision skills. It also provides the perfect opportunity for teens to discuss books and reading with their peers.

The Sequoyah selection process helps students develop a love of leisure reading, which is important for lifelong learning.

Reading quality fiction helps students improve the literacy skills they need for their future studies. Since our library program receives no funding, your support of this project is crucial to getting good literature into students' hands.
