Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach eighth grade English in the District Of Columbia. The students in my classes are from low income families. Many of my students have been left back once, sometimes twice, because they have not received a quality education that has been reinforced at home. While working with these students, I have realized that they have lost hope because many people in their lives have given up on them. I would like to change that. I am seeking funding to stock the in-class library. Our school has a 35 book campaign which requires all students to read 35 books throughout the school year. While I have instilled the desire to read in my students, resources at the school and at home are limited. We desperately need a class library filled with interesting books that the students can read. Currently we have about 30 books on the shelf. Many of them are outdated and missing pages. In this proposal, I am requesting five copies of each of the following books: "Slam", "Monster", "The First Last Part", "Who Am I Without Him?", "Forged By Fire", "Double Dutch", "Darkness Before Dawn", "Tears of A Tiger", "Uncle Tom's Cabin", "Narrative Life of Frederick Douglas", and "Incidents In The Life Of A Slave Girl". Thank you for considering my proposal.
