My students need 17 new HIGH INTEREST novels for independent reading time!
Do you remember the first time you read a book that you literally could not put down? I know that reading such books will have a significant impact on my students' futures. It is my goal to assist in increasing their love for literature by exposing them to as many books as possible. My students are learning to value reading more and more, everyday.
The more books I have available to them, the more their love for literature grows.
Here is some information about our school population: 90% of our students are first-generation college bound. 80% of our students are economically disadvantaged. 95% of our students are Hispanic or African American. Most students enter our school at least one grade level behind in math and reading.
All of the novels I'm asking for have been requested by one or more of my students. With these books, I will form books clubs, which will build my students' critical thinking skills. The students will also be able to use these books for their "just right book," which is the book that they are required to read for 40 minutes a night for homework. Providing students with an abundance of books gives them the ability to choose their own book. I have quickly learned that providing my students with choice not only empowers them, but also motivates them to work hard in and out of the classroom.
This project is critical to my students' success.
I know that they will read more with a variety of books readily available to them. Growing my classroom library guarantees my students success in Middle School ELA, as well as their other academic subjects. By providing my students with the tools to become lifelong readers, I am providing a critical foundation for success in school and the real world.Read More
