My Students

Our Middle School serves students from all over Oakland and we are proud to be one of the most diverse Middle Schools in our district. Montera students are vibrant, excited to learn and eager for new information, especially new novels to read and dissect.

We are in need of class sets of a culturally-relevant, engaging novel for our students to use to write their next book report.

These books will be added to our School library to benefit all students in years to come. Our two eighth grade teachers have chosen the book for it's fantastic elements, cultural relevance and high critical acclaim.

My Project

Your contribution will allow us to build community around an exciting new novel and teach our eighth graders how to write a strong book report using textual evidence.

We need class sets of "Children of Blood and Bone" to be used by our eighth graders for their next book report.

We have searched high and low for a text that is engaging, culturally relevant and that features teenage characters. We are so excited to get our youth reading Tomi Adeyemi's debut novel. Our brains, classrooms and teachers are ready; all that's missing is the text.

Once the books have been used by our eighth graders ,we hope to make them available to any class that wishes to use them by storing them in our awesome School Library. This means your gift will keep on giving!
