Mr. DAmato from Brooklyn NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Forged By Fire

My students need 40 copies of "Forged by Fire" by Sharon Draper.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My high school is located in New York. It is a high poverty, high-needs high school.

Last year students asked to read Forged by Fire. This year with budget cuts we do not have enough copies of the text to give to students. These cuts have devastated the opportunity for the students to read this classical novel.

With your help my students will have enough copies to engage in a college preparatory activity with the novel. Students will write critical analysis papers writing citations in MLA which is required in college. They will also read a novel that has impacted American literature to the extreme.

Please help us and help me teach my students the importance of the power of the word. The word found in great novels. This novel will inspire my students to tackle the great issues which we are faced with as a nation today.

Grades 9-12
Nearly all students from low‑income households
