Help me give my students access to stories written by a diverse group of authors! Stories like Children of Blood & Bone and The Hate U Give.
I am a 10th grade teacher in the Mississippi Delta at a Title I high school. 100% of our student body receives free lunch. My students are vivacious and eager learners who continuously strive to figure out the "why." Their natural tenacity and curiosity makes our classroom a haven of exploration and discovery.
Our class motto is "learning is messy." In my classroom students are encouraged to ask the big questions and step boldly into the unknown.
Despite their economic hardships, my students are determined conquer the world.
It is so important for my students to see books written by authors who look like them. Stories like "The Hate U Give" (Written by Mississippi's own Angie Thomas) and "Children of Blood and Bone" open new worlds for my students--worlds that reflect their experiences.
I want my students to feel empowered by the books that they read.
I want them to see themselves reflected in the characters and narratives. I want them to think deeply about their own voices. This selection of books was carefully curated to empower and embolden the students who read them while providing a platform for deep thinking and discussion.
