My students need three copies of various fiction and nonfiction books for our classroom library so that we can conduct book clubs/literature circles in our class.
My students are 7th graders at a middle school in a small east Texas town. My students are resilient and hopeful and excited for their futures. Since Hurricane Harvey, many of my kids face daunting challenges each day, yet they show up and do their best.
My students are readers and writers.
They make me proud every day and remind me why I became a teacher. They deserve the best, and I want them to have every opportunity to succeed.
My class needs a wide selection of books and novels in our classroom library so that we can conduct book clubs/literature circles in class. Literature circles encourage a love, appreciation, and positive attitude toward reading. It's a way to let students cooperate, collaborate, and think critically all while reading a diverse set of texts. The books I’ve chosen to add to our class library are high-interest, challenging, and thought-provoking for middle school students. It is essential that students have a choice in what they read. Having all of these different titles available in our class will give them that choice.
The freedom and choice students have in book clubs encourage them to love to read, and that is the greatest gift I could ever give them.
By providing students a choice in what they read, it gives them ownership of their learning, encourages independence, and promotes success. Students become engaged when they are in charge of their learning, and having all of these books available so we can have book clubs will provide that sense of responsibility and inspiration to my students.
