Mrs. L. from Chicago IL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Choices, Chances, Changes!

My students need "Choices" magazines to read, analyze, and discuss Choices that teenagers make to enhance their academic achievement.

My Students

My students are middle school students in grades 6-8 who are learning to discover a passion for reading. 97% of my students receive SNAP benefits and come from a low socioeconomic environment. My students have been introduced to many fantastic authors that they can relate to and I want to enhance their little light and help it shine brighter.

My students are very vocal about issues they face in their community.

I believe reading will be an opportunity for my children to escape, if only for a while.

My Project

The chart paper and markers will allow students to work collaboratively on project presentations. Students will have the opportunity to showcase their learning with peers and publicize their learning on bulletin boards. These items will make a difference in my students' learning because the items requested support students' different learning styles.

The "Choices" Magazines will make a difference in my students' learning because they will have the opportunity to read about choices that teenagers face in their daily lives.

Choices magazine will provide them with examples of positive choices teenagers around the world have made to enhance their academic achievements.
