My Project

My students are an extremely diverse group of eighth graders. They range in socio-economic background, reading level, gender, ethnic make-up, family circumstances, and experiences. As a result, in order to challenge and support students and hook students on reading a number of books that match the diversity of my students are necessary. I have created a list of books that really has something for everyone. These books will be added to my classroom library and be available for students to choose as their free choice reading books. These books will help to hook students on reading and therefore have a positive impact on their reading development.
