Book Love

Help me give my students high quality, high-interest books for our classroom library.

My Students

11th grade English is the year of the state mandated Reading and Writing tests that all students have to pass in order to graduate, so it's a high stakes year for them.

My 11th grade English classes contain many students who have lost the love of and joy associated with reading.

Every year, I have some students who admit they have not read an entire book since elementary school--I want to re-ignite a reading passion for them that sets them firmly on the path of being life-long readers.

My Project

Representation and diversity at their fingertips--that's just part of what a well-stocked classroom library provides for students. I'm Not Your Typical Mexican Daughter, Dress Codes for Small Towns, and After the Shot Drops all provide mirrors which allow my students to see themselves and their experiences in the pages of a book.

Independent reading is a staple in our English classroom, and it's vital for students to have easy access to books of interest.

Each class period starts with READ10--silent reading time for books of choice.

Even just the visual presence of a classroom library communicates the value of reading to students, and these new books will all be high-interest additions.
