Mrs. Chun from Manor TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Come Join Our Book Club!

My students need new books that are culturally relevant. Books like The Hate U Give and All American Boys, address identities, discrimination, and encourage students to courageously stand up for what is right.

My Students

My students from Austin attend a STEM academy focused on project-based learning and college readiness. This school gives students of all ethnicities, status, and parts of Austin the opportunity to learn strategies and innovation for life-long learning.

They love our daily independent reading times and are constantly looking for books that relate to their lives.

It is a joy for students with diverse backgrounds to read stories that give them language to describe their lives. These books give them power to embrace their identities as readers and writers!

My Project

My students need recently published texts that will engage their interest while functioning as mentor texts for their own narrative writing. These books have all published in the past five years, so they reference trends and ideas teenagers can relate to.

Students will choose their book club based on what book interests them, so they will build connections with classmates and foster discussions around literature, and how it relates to our lives, in our classes.

These books will also be available for students to read during their independent reading time, giving them appealing books and choice for their free time. I've noticed my students are motivated to read books their friends have recommended, so having these books available will allow groups of students to read and discuss books of their choosing.
