"Do you have a copy of....?" It makes me so happy to hear my students asking for new books to read and sharing their experiences through reading. Witnessing their joy for reading is thrilling as an English teacher. Our school is rich with diverse students who appreciate a culture of learning. I teach a wide variety of academic levels; tech prep to honors with students on every level.
My classroom is a place of challenge and discovery.
Along with reading the classics, students need the opportunity to choose independent reading selections. My students are excited to learn new things and expand their capacity for critical thinking. They take pride in learning about the world around them and experiencing life.
A rich and diverse classroom library will provide opportunities for my students to get lost in reading. In order to enjoy reading students need more choices, more challenges, and access to books. I want my classroom to be a place discovery and engagement. I teach a wide variety of students, and I really want to add variety to my classroom library.
Creating a rich classroom library will create lifelong readers.
My students will benefit from a classroom library that has books for every reader. Finding a love for books can be as easy as finding the right book, so I want to provide access for my students to a wide variety of texts. I believe that all people love a great story, and this project could help my students find their favorite.
