I am Tired of Reading this Again. This is not Fair!

My students need to be exposed to high level text to increase their comprehension of complex text.

My Students

How would you feel if you worked extremely hard to improve your reading level, but your school had no complex text for you to read when you finally learned to read on grade level?

My students are great students who often get overlooked in a challenging school environment.

Most of them have only been in the country for a few years, however, their tenacity to learn is overwhelming. Unfortunately, since our school does not have a library, many of them lose an interest in reading when they reach higher reading levels. This is due to the fact that our school does not have many complex text. Therefore, many of these kids are stuck re-reading easier books.

My Project

As a teacher there is no greater reward than to see your students reading on grade level. Unfortunately, for me this is a nightmare. Most of my brilliant students who push themselves tremendously to reach grade level cannot find books in the school on a middle school level. This is due to the fact that our school does not have a library. Therefore, these guided reading books for my higher level reading will greatly increase rigor in the classroom, and support my students' quest for learning.

My project is important because reading is truly fundamental.

Everyday my students loose out when they do not have access to vital materials- books. Please help to foster a love for reading, and a drive to pursue continued exploration of books.
