Mrs. Johnson from Boston MA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a variety of young adult literature that focus on important issues for young people such as immigration, race relations, identity and hopes.
I work with students who come from various backgrounds, many of whom are English Language Learners from low-income families who have the drive to learn. These students are friendly and love to be engaged and immersed in the English language and our school culture.
Many of my students have limited access to opportunities due to family structure and responsibilities.
Many of them are beginning a new life in this country and deal with isolation, transition, and adjustment to the expectations of a new culture and school system.
My students are working towards being independent readers. I would love to enrich our classroom library with high interest young adult books to offer a wider selection for them. They read a new book for 2 weeks and start a new one after their book talks.
My goal is help my students grow intellectually as they integrate to their new society while fostering their language skills.
All of my students are from immigrant families. With the selected books, I hope to show them that they are not alone in their struggles and dreams in a new country. Books have definitely helped me!
