Help me give my students books to supplement our Social Justice book club unit.
My students work in a team-taught atmosphere and spend a ton of time together. We study Shakespeare (with costumes and props, the way it was meant to be read!), read a lot of books and are working to become excellent writers.
The students in my classroom see themselves on a learning continuum that always has endless space for improvement.
We work on projects and discussions together often, and we love to collaborate and share our talents. Some highlights of our year include reading Macbeth, writing research papers, and preparing United Nations-themed speeches about different countries in conflict.
My freshman students work hard to make connections between what we read in class and the world, other texts, and themselves. We talk about it every day because the best way to stay engaged in reading is to be able to connect with it.
During our Social Justice Book Club unit, students break into small groups and read books, making connections to what we study in class and with their own lives.
This project would expand the options for that book club, from The Hate U Give, All American Boys, and Dear Martin, adding Internment and Refugee. I'm also excited to add some picture books to the unit and give kids an opportunity to analyze them.
Many of these books are a continuation of series that they have already begun and love, and anytime a kid knows in advance what the next book they'll pick up will be, it's already a win in my book!
