Common Core Continued

My students need the books suggested for Common Core Curriculum.

My Students

Common Core Curriculum aims to have all students across the United States career and college ready; too many students are not meeting those expectations.

A snapshot of our middle school shows a diverse high-need school comprised of about 1,100 students in grades six to eight.

Half of our student population receives free or reduced priced lunch. Approximately half of our students receive support services in addition to their core classes. Many of our students are not native English speakers. The students have all been impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

My Project

These requested books are suggested reading for Middle School students. They are not books we already own and having a few preview copies to loan from our school library, to both children and teachers would help. Having a copy or two of each book would allow for many different uses. The teachers could borrow the book to read to the whole class or small groups. Teachers could read each and decide if it is a text that can be utilized with his or her students. Students could read the books independently and create based on their reading. Students can read in groups and work together to learn and grow.

Reading has always been important.

We are focusing on what our students are reading and want to offer each child the materials to make them career and college ready. By supporting our project you will be supplying the books that we need to help reach our goal.
