Mrs. Cohen Volin Imperato from Philadelphia PA is requesting books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Completing a Full Classroom Set

Help me give my students understand history through this classic book. I have been reading Maus with my students for over ten year now. They always love reading it. However, I don't have enough copies.

My Students

I have 90 7th graders who are more excited about learning than any others I have seen. Budget cuts have very negatively impacted our school. We have less staff, aging technology, and don't have any more money for books. The parents have had to foot the bill for more and more, which is a huge burden on them.

My goal in teaching 7th Grade English is to make students love to read.

How much a middle school student reads predicts their future life success. Therefore, my goal is to instill a love of reading.

My Project

I have been reading the book Maus with my students for over ten years. This is a classic graphic novel about the Holocaust. It is a great way to get reluctant readers interested in historical fiction.

However, when I handed out the books today, I realized many of my copies are falling apart.

I do not have enough copies in good condition. I need ten more books as soon as possible, so all my student can borrow a copy. Please come to my students' rescue. Every child deserves to read interesting books that are in good condition. I am asking for hardback books this time so they last longer.
