Mr. Hoover from Port Arthur TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need class sets of books for guided reading. My course is intended to help Enlish Language Learners with reading comprehension, as well as U.S. History. These books will help these students with all three.
Our high school is a predominantly low income high school in Texas. Our city is still recovering from Hurricane Harvey last year, and many of our students are still displaced. I am an ESL Reading teacher who serves a large population of English language learners. I have almost 80 students, the majority of which are newcomers to the United States. Although most of my student’s first language is Spanish, I also have students who have traveled from Vietnam, China, and India.
My name is Mr. H, and this is my first year serving as the ESL Reading teacher at a high school in Port Arthur Texas. My students are beginning and intermediate English language learners who are required to pass a state assessment in U.S. History in order to graduate. Historically the U.S. History STAAR test has been a challenge for English Language Learners at our school.
These class sets of "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" and "The Jungle" will help my student's reading comprehension as well as knowledge of US History.
I already own the audio books for each of these works of literature: however, the paperbacks will allow the students to either read along, or preferrably read independently.
I am also asking for two Telugu/English dictionaries for two new students from India.
