My Students

The students at my school are special because they come to school each day wanting to do their best. We are a language academy site for our district so we have many newcomers with little to no English skills. Our student population represents many countries from around the world. However, they love school and want to do their best. They love coming to the library and checking out books to read. For many students, these are the only books they have.

Our library is a key part of our school climate.

It is the center of our school, literally. It is the middle point of the building and also a major corridor to access all parts of our building. It is a vibrant and welcoming space that students visit weekly with their classes. During those visits, they receive a lesson and then have time to look through the collection, check-out and return materials.

My Project

Students love to read and they are always looking for books that are different. By getting more graphic novels in the library, it will spark an interest in reading for some students.

Graphic novels such as Dragonbreath and Warriors are a great way to spark an interest in reading for students who need the pictures to help tell the story.

These books can open a new world to students especially the students who have limited English in our building.

These materials will be used by many students at all reading levels to improve their interest in reading as well as the students ability to read.
