I work in a low-income school on the west side in Chicago. It is 100% African American, and I am the only Asian American in the school. Rarely do my students come to school with supplies, even pencils and paper is scarce. Therefore, I would like to give them something they can use again and again. I would like to purchase some books for my students. Very few of them have any books at home, and it would be nice to buy them some books they could have to keep. I feel that this is important because they would have something to read over and over again. Plus, whenever I have a book, I like to write my name in it. And while I read it, I can make notes and comments along the way, so that next time I read it, I can understand exactly what I was thinking the previous time. I think that would be a good way to help students make the book “their own." Please help!
