Filling a Hunger For Knowledge

My students need a class set (31 copies) of "The Hunger Games."

My Students

I am currently a 7th grade English Language Arts teacher in a high-needs middle school. Our classroom would benefit from a class set of "The Hunger Games" so we can explore the joys of reading together.

My school's population consists of low-income English Language Learners.

My students work hard and often support their mothers and fathers by running household errands and watching younger siblings. I find them truly amazing, knowing what trouble they go through each and every day of their young lives. Within my school, the majority of the students qualify for the state's free or reduced-price meal program. Some students even reside in shelters. Due to the budget cuts schools are facing, teachers in my school are no longer able to personally give each student the resources they desire.

My Project

I would love to acquire a class set of the high interest novel, "The Hunger Games." In our adventure through the novel together, I can point out character traits, settings, conflicts, writer's techniques, etc. I have also selected this novel because the movie is slated to come out in March. In addition to being a reward for completing the book, it would open the door to a great opportunity for compare/contrast activities and skill-building exercises.

Please support my proposal and provide my 2 ELA classes with a classroom set of "The Hunger Games." Your help is desperately needed and every little bit helps.

Thank you in advance for seeking out donorschoose.org to support education and kids in need.
