As a language arts teacher at KIPP Bayview Academy, I feel very strongly about providing the most text-rich environment possible for my students. We are learning new vocabulary all the time - as it comes up in novels, articles, and other stories we read. Ideally, each one of my students would have a dictionary at home, but unfortunately, this is not the case. For this reason, I would like to have a class set of dictionaries here, at school, for students to use and check out for home usage. In addition to increasing their vocabularies tremendously, this will improve their reference usage skills, their spelling skills, and their language skills overall.

Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
