Ms. T. from Salt Lake Cty UT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Fall in Love With Reading Again!

Help me give my students the opportunity to read high quality, engaging young adult fiction as a class. These books reflect students' interests, lives and experiences, and will be books they can't put down!

My Students

Every day, representatives from Nepal, Tibet, Kenya, Tonga, Somalia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Guatemala, Myanmar, Thailand, Sierra Leone, Japan, Bosnia, and Utah--just to name a few--show up in a classroom. They are there to learn, to study literature and academic English. They wear many identities and labels throughout the day: minority, refugee, ESL student, bilingual, fee waiver, below grade level, low income. This room is a safe haven as students prepare for standardized tests that determine their opportunities for college and career post high school. It is a space where students can discover a greater love of reading and extend their definitions of "American literature." This classroom is a space in which they all receive one label: scholars.

My Project

How do you keep high school students off their phones and inside the pages of a book? Give them highly engaging stories that keep them excited about reading. These books will allow my classes to study novels together using high-interest, high quality literary materials that we could not otherwise access and experience as a whole class. Students are too often drawn away from reading because they can't find reading material that keeps them riveted and excited about the book. Your generosity will allow us to fall in love with reading all over again!
