Ms. Clapsadl from Kearns UT is requesting books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Diverse + Captivating Student Novels

Help me give my students access to books that they show interest in. They deserve to see themselves reflected in the pages of the books they have access to.

My Students

As an English teacher, I have always struggled to get students engaged in reading and writing. After the past few years of pandemic-style learning, I have found it even more difficult to get students excited about reading books. Many of my students do not have access to books at home, and feel unsure of themselves when it comes to visiting the library. As this pandemic continues, so does the drastic drop in students' reading abilities. Re-sparking student interest in English is critical to their success in my class, their other classes, and in the world outside of school.

My Project

These books will help my students to take interest in the books we have on our classroom shelves. They crave literature that is relatable and enticing, but as a teacher I lack the resources to provide them with said materials. Having access to book topics that they are interested in would help them to engage in reading more often, which would naturally lead to an increase in their reading abilities across the board. The pandemic has set them back in more ways than one, but they need to be caught up in their reading skills if they are to continue to aim for success in their academic careers.
