My students need 18 copies of the novel "Unwind" by Neal Shusterman.
My students have not yet discovered that reading can be just as exciting as action movies. However, this is only because they have not yet read the book Unwind. My students are craving action filled novels, however, the problem is that we don't have these types of books available.
I teach 7th grade language arts.
Many of my students entered 7th grade reading several years below grade level. The problem we are currently facing is that we live in a high needs community that does not have adequate funding to meet the needs of our students. This year my students are very ambitious and have decided that our class goal is to grow two full years in reading this year alone. I truly believe that my determined and highly motivated students will be able to reach this goal if we are able to gather the right resources. My students have just begun discover that reading can be enjoyable. The same student that complained about reading at the beginning of the year recently said, "reading is kind of like TV in your head." I know that engaging reading material will not only foster my students love of literature, but will also allow for them to reach their reading goals.
Unwind by Neal Shusterman is the perfect book foster my students love of reading. Shusterman is an excellent writer that captures the readers interest and holds his audience captive from cover to cover. As my students read this book they will be able to apply critical thinking skills in order to analyze the character's motivation and plot of the story. With your help we can continue to help my students grow as readers. Additionally, you will help to close the achievement gap for these struggling readers by allowing them to read challenging books that will increase their reading levels.
The support that you provide us will allow my students to discover that reading can be enjoyable.
Without your help it would be impossible for my students to receive these materials. Your contribution will allow my students to increase their reading scores and get back on grade level.
