My students need poetry. They need poetry with language they can understand and people they can relate to. My cart includes 13 Young Adult Poetry books.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Every year, I get so excited for National Poetry month (April)! I want poetry to be meaningful, fun, and exciting for my middle and high school students. As a teacher this is hard when I work in a school with no library and have to come up with my own books for my classroom library.
I teach 8th, 9th, and 12th grade Literature in a 6-12 charter school.
The students are respectful and well-behaved. Currently they take good care of the books in my classroom library. The students will be incredibly appreciative of and kind to new books.
I challenge my students to read 20 books in one semester. During National Poetry Month (April), I ask my students to read 4 books of poetry. This is difficult when the school does not have a library from which to choose poetry. We will be reading poetry as a class and individually.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote "How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways". I love poetry. I love teaching poetry. My students are just learning to love poetry. Please join my class in sharing a love of poetry.
