Our school has been doing remote or hybrid learning since March of 2020. Students have a need to connect to one another for social emotional support. I'm organizing a school wide reading initiative so students can continue reading for fun and to connect with one another.
My students attend a public urban high school that is 64 percent low income.
These books will be used as part of our state-wide reader's choice program. Our school has not participated in this program before, so you will be supporting our inaugural year of reading and voting on a set of young adult books from diverse perspectives. I'm excited to start this program so that students can compare their perspective on titles with the perspectives of their peers from around the state. These books will function as both a mirror of students' own culture and identities as well as a window into other people's experiences.
