Help me give my students a great class read for the whole class that is fun, engaging, and at-level.
Almost 2,000 students from this large urban middle school in NYC visit the library where I serve as teacher-librarian. This large school community represents an incredibly diverse community drawn from the entire Brooklyn area, representing more than 50 countries and languages, and the school is committed to providing a niche for every student: high achievers, techies, students with special needs, and the 10% who are also learning English. The school library must serve the needs of each and every one of these developing individuals.
That means the library and my work is to ensure that all these learners become strong readers and independent thinkers.
To this end, the library program is at a central hub of the school. Just like the whole school serves these many students, in the library students need to be able to find mirrors, windows, and sliding doors to the experiences of others.
The group of students using the library for special support through the MSQI program already love reading but need sustained instruction to improve their literacy skills. A class set of a fun, relatable, at-level book that the entire community can share will enhance these skills without infringing on the fun and joy reading offers.
With this class set of Tapper Twins Go to War (With Each Other), we will be able to share in a communal, scholarly experience that improves fluency, comprehension, grit, and critical thinking.
A whole-class read can be scaffolded for the least to most adept and allows students to build on each others' strengths. Ultimately, from sharing in this reading together, the rest of the library becomes more accessible to these students--a portal to growth and inspiration.
