Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My English language learners come from all over the world - China, Russia, Mexico, Uzbekistan, Malaysia, Jordan, and more! They are funny, creative, intelligent, and motivated. As new students entering middle school in the United States for the first time, they are eager to learn, make new friends, and do well in school.

Middle school students learning English don't want to read "baby books." However, they often have to read the only books I have available that they can understand - books catered to young children, since their reading levels are low.

They're interested in the same genres as their peers, such as fantasy, mystery, social justice, dystopian, etc. Help me give my students books they will actually be excited about reading!

My Project

When it's time to choose books, my 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English language learners have to choose from titles like "Three Baby Ducks and Mommy," or "The Playground and Me." While these books are technically on their reading level, they are neither interesting nor stimulating for pre-teens and teenagers.

Having a class set of graphic novels will help my students learn to read with cool literature they are actually excited about.

These books will help them learn to read by providing picture support to language - and they're actually interesting! My students will no longer have to sit next to their friends with children's books they feel embarrassed to hold. They'll finally be excited to choose books they can read.
