Teacher A. from McKinney TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books Can Take Us Places!

My students need books that will take them places they have never been, whether it's to Odessa, Texas with Friday Night Lights or modern day New York with the mythological Trials of Apollo.

My Students

The students I spend my days with are curious, compassionate, real and interested in the world around them. We read on a daily basis, as it is the foundation for all that we do.

My students need books they can connect with and books that will give them a place to find themselves!

What better way than to have a variety of books that can peak their interest in the world around them and help develop a life-long love for reading.

My Project

My students need a variety of authentic, meaningful book choices to help develop a life-long love of reading. From a non-fiction book that appeals to athletes to a poetic, musically written coming-of-age story to a mythological adventure, these books will spark a new-found love for reading.

These books will foster a sense of community in our classroom, as we read and explore universal themes, character development and plot twists that can enhance learning in many ways using a book club reading approach.

Reading together, discussing together and exploring ideas about life together is a vital skill for middle school students.
