My students need 10 new YA and memoir books to celebrate Black History Month.
My ELL tenth grade students are all recent immigrants who are learning English as their second or third language. They are from more than 20 countries and speak more than 6 different languages.
My students are amazing recent immigrants who work part-time jobs, take care of family members, play sports and attend our after-school programs.
Many of my students are falling in love with reading for the first time, and they need books at their level that interest and engage them.
I recently had my students do a journal prompt based on Nicola Yoon's Young Adult novel Everything, Everything. Students quickly fell in love with the passage and keep asking when I can secure more copies of the title.
I then gave my students the task of finding a collection of novels and memoirs by Black authors that they want to read.
This project of ten books is the result. Some of the titles are from asking other teens what they liked to read after reading Nicola Yoon's "Everything, Everything." Two of the titles were recommended when memoir writer Candace McDuffie visited our class. After our conversation with Candace McDuffie, many students shared that they want more books that reflect their lives and experiences with racism in our classroom.
