Fahrenheit Fans Please Help
My students need 30 copies of "Fahrenheit 451".
My 10th grade students are under huge pressure to do well on state tests. However, many of them struggle in reading. They want to improve but I have got to do my part and provide interesting yet challenging books. This will provide rigor and help prepare them for college readings.
My 10th graders are awesome!
Many of them I taught in the 9th grade as well. Many of them have increased their reading levels and now are proficient in many areas on state assessments. I want to keep them moving forward but I need some help. There are not many complex books of high interest in my school. My school does not have a lot of money to fund class sets. I have found an author (Ray Bradbury) that my students have come to find interesting and I want them to read more of his books but I need your help.
Before November, only a handful of my students would have known anything about Science Fiction. Now, with the help of our textbook and the Twilight Zone, there are many new fans. I want to continue to feed off their interest while introducing them to more complex text. This is where your help comes in. The book "Fahrenheit 451" is a classic and my students are very much interested in reading it however we do not have a class set in the school. If we are blessed to get this book, we will be able to analyze Bradbury's thinking, use of figurative language and how his themes spread across many of his stories.
My students are so depended on technology.
Ray Bradbury's themes and subjects have my students reflecting on their dependency on technology and it really has opened the door to great discussions. Since I have their attention with this genre, I want to keep it using more of Bradbury's works. This donation will allow me to do that. I know these discussions is making them be reflective of what they consider important, quality of life and thoughts about the future.
