My Students

Our school has approximately 1600 students, and over 75% receive free or reduced-price lunch. Our school is the most diverse traditional high school in our region, representing cultures from all around the world.

Most of our students are immigrants, and many of them struggle with learning English.

When you first walk into the library, you see a mural saying "All Are Welcome" in the 22 languages currently spoken on our campus. The library is a safe space for my students, where they can do homework, play games, and visit with friends; but also importantly, it is the place where they can select reading resources that they enjoy and that can help them improve their English.

My Project

Manga books (Japanese-style comics) are incredibly popular everywhere. My students, many of whom are just learning to read English, love these serialized stories and may not even realize that the books are helping them improve their language skills. These books are great choice for my English language learning students for two reasons: Students are not overwhelmed by having too many words on a page, and students can look to the illustrations to help explain the story.

Unfortunately, my limited budget means I just cannot keep up with all the best new titles.

I want my students to walk into my library and find the most up-to-date and well-reviewed manga titles available to them.
