Ms. Moon from Bronx NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Create a Utopian Society

My students need a class set of a classic thought-provoking novel,The Giver.

  • $564 goal

This project expired on February 2, 2015.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our class set of "The Giver" is falling apart and my students are taping pages together.

My students may be from a high-poverty area but they yearn for a wealth of knowledge!

They are bright, engaged young scholars who want to learn about the world around them. They love reading thought-provoking novels that lead to controversial debates and deep discussions.

My Project

We will be using the class sets of "The Giver" to have discussions along the themes of Utopian societies, choice vs. freedom, safety, and "ignorance is bliss". They will be creating their own utopian societies after reading about Jonas and his community.

My students earnestly want to learn and they can't learn efficiently when our books are falling apart!

Your donation will help my students focus on the big ideas throughout the novel.

Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
