My Students

My middle school students come from lower income families that struggle meeting the basic needs of housing, clothing, health care and other basic needs. Extra money for books are not available to my middle school students. They love to go to the library and check out books each week, but there are never enough of their favorite ones- graphic novels.

My students average two years behind grade level and need every encouragement to read.

They tend to finish the graphic novels as it keeps their interest.

My Project

In the age of video games and cell phones, reading is a struggle for many students. As a middle school teacher, I try very hard to get them to read and purchase many books with my own money. I would love to be able to have graphic novels for my students because that is what they want to read. Some novels that I am requesting include Dracula, Trapped in a Video Game, Robin Hood, Treasure Island, The War of the Worlds, and Les Misérables.

If graphic novels get my students reading, it's a must for my classroom.

I hate it when my students cannot find anything that they are interested in reading. Please help me with my goal of my students reading twenty books this school year! Reading changes everything for these students.
