My students need books to build an amazing classroom library for their last year of high school!
There's nothing like a room full of teenagers voraciously reading! With a lot of good book choices and ample SSR (Sustained Silent Reading) time, my students begin to see themselves as readers.
My students are diverse learners from various backgrounds in a low-income neighborhood in Oakland, CA.
My school is small, tight-knit, and serves students 6-12. One of our core values is family, and that is something I strive to foster in my classroom.
Every English classroom at my school has its own classroom library, and all students participate in SSR. For many students, SSR is one of the only times during the day they have true choice and also a quiet space to develop as readers. I am working on building up my classroom library so that my students have more and more books to choose from, with the ultimate goal that they will view themselves as readers.
By donating to this project, you are providing students with endless reading opportunities.
You are helping me to surround students with a variety of stories that will help them build their own narratives: how they view themselves, the people around them, their community, and their world. Thank you!!
