Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are some of the most dynamic, energetic and brilliant children you'll ever meet. While many have their challenges, once they've connected with you and feel safe, they will allow you to push them until they push themselves forward.

They also have a range of background knowledge from their personal experiences, observations and years of schooling which makes discussing text a lively enlightening experience.

They are also quite vocal about the kinds of experiences they want to have in class.

My Project

My students need a plethora of fiction and non-fiction novels which will expand their reading ability. Moreover, novels like, "To Kill a Mockingbird" provide a range of topics fit to fuel lively meaningful collegial style discussion. Each book exposes these scholars to ideas and experiences that will enhance the way they see themselves, each other and the world. The chosen material include language, style and themes that will enrich their reading experience and provide new ideas and insights about people, places and things. These novels, which range in complexity also highlight author's craft, which is a focus in reading comprehension.
