Mrs. Bailey from Binger OK is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a class set of novels which will help them develop and retain an interest in reading. I have requested the novel Cinder to help show students how literature develops and grows over time.
My students live in a small, rural community. They spend most of their lives in the same town, many traveling no farther than 40 or so miles away, and that's generally only if they play sports. They long to know and explore a world outside of their own. They are hard working students who deserve a chance to experience all the wonders of the world. Many have never been exposed to other cultures or ways of life than what is available right around them. They desperately need ways to learn about what exists outside of their tiny town.
I have requested the novel, Cinder, to help my kids in 9th and 10th grades continue to love reading. This is a fun novel with fairytale elements but also a hard-working, genetically enhanced cyborg who has no idea she's actually a princess. I want to teach this novel in conjunction with the Grimm's version, Disney version, and a modern version, with this showing the futuristic take on the beloved princess. Students will see how literature evolves though writers continually use the classics for inspiration. Students will learn that the idea of a girl needing a prince to rescue her from her dreary life has shifted to the idea that the girl can rescue herself or the prince, or the two can rescue each other whenever necessary.
