My Students

My students are kind, clever, and energetic 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders who attend a rural high school in Idaho. They represent a diverse population of the community including students from low-income families and students with special needs.

Many of my students are enthusiastic readers who love to talk about books with others.

This school year, I hope to add a variety of new young adult titles to our classroom library students to choose from and to incorporate book-club style discussions in my classes.

My Project

The books in this project encompass both fiction and nonfiction, and they include a variety of genres including graphic novels (March) and verse (Enchanted Air). The themes of these books represent a range of relevant themes and issues for students to consider: identity, relationships, social justice, health, and culture.

I believe that the love of reading is a life-long gift that will help students to better understand others - and themselves.

It is essential that students have regular access to a wide range of engaging literature and opportunities to discuss what they are reading and thinking with others. These texts are fresh, thought provoking, and relevant, especially for today's young adults.
