Help me give my students have access to high interest literature!
My students love to read and I love sharing with them various genres of literature. The students that I serve are in grades five through eight at our middle school. Access at home to books is often limited and when students visit the library the expression on their faces is priceless when they are placed with a book in their hands.
My students are in need of on level, engaging, high interest text that they will have access to.
This donation of books would serve a building of over 800 students and materials will be reused and part of our circulation for years to come.
Graphic novels help reluctant readers improve reading comprehension. When images are used along with text students are able to engage in learning and decode tough vocabulary. Utilizing popular cultural elements of contemporary students demonstrates to the students that their lives and interests are respected by their teachers. This demonstration of respect can help students to be more receptive to other curriculum content. “We’re not talking about co-opting superficial trappings of youth,” says Nancy Frey, herself a teacher and author of Using Graphic Novels, Anime, and the Internet in an Urban High School. “What we are talking about is acknowledging to our students that we care about their interests and recognize the value of their contributions to the classroom community.”
