My students need a diverse library of graphic novels to help encourage and develop a love of reading.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My 7th Grade English Language Arts students are wonderful. They are kind, thoughtful, and for the most part, love to read. They are mostly from Queens. My school is a Title I School, which means that a large percentage of them come from low income households.
My students need access to diverse books.
This project will make my classroom a place where students can access new books for them to read in order to help strengthen their reading and writing abilities.
My students sometimes need a helping hand to develop their love of reading. I like to encourage them to read graphic novels in their free time as students are definitely less resistant to these types of books.
Graphic novels are gateway books.
Students are much more likely to read and engage with graphic novels, and it is a great way to draw "reluctant readers" in. My goal this year is to have a Graphic Novel Club once a week during lunch for students who want to either read and/or discuss their graphic novels or, perhaps, work on one of their own.
My graphic novel library is somewhat limited, and this project would definitely strengthen one of the most important genres in my classroom.
