Classroom Set of Sold by Patricia McCormic

My Students

My students are at that critical age when a love for reading can still be developed. They are also in an awkward stage between a child and teenager and are highly influenced by their peers. It is often difficult to find a novel that captures their attention and makes them want to research and discover more.

My students have been working hard all year and looking forward to reading the novel "Sold".

They show and interest in the subject of human trafficking which lends itself to a variety of research projects. I would love for them to each have their own classroom copy of the novel so they are not having to share.

My Project

Our language arts department will be completing a unit over human trafficking in preparation of moving on to high school next year. We currently only have enough copies of the novel "Sold" by Patricia McCormick for two out of our three English classrooms. The students must share their copies during reading which makes it difficult for them to complete independent work and activities.

These novels will make a tremendous difference to our students.

In the past, students have loved this unit, which encourages reluctant readers to try new books and build and appreciation for literature. The topic of human trafficking is of high interest to these young adults.
