Help me give my students access to novels that engage and reflect common themes for young male readers.
If you step foot into my classroom, you would see a class of student-sponges eager to learn. They are curious, fun-loving, quick to laugh, with just a little dose of sass. They enjoy a good debate and thrive on a good challenge. They attack difficult material with a vigor I haven't seen in many of the buildings in which I have taught. They constantly make me laugh and inspire me every day with their grit and willingness to challenge themselves.
As a seasoned teacher, I have often found that it is challenging to engage young males in reading. Our society still has a bit of stigma against boys who love to read and, therefore, many of my males come to me below grade-level in their comprehension. Many of my boys find they have to go through 3-4 books before finding one that captures their interests and reflects their experiences and those they wish and need to hear from.
The titles I have selected here have been favorites from boy readers for many years and have notoriety for being engaging and capturing many of the experiences my student body experiences.
Many of these have lived long lives on my shelves and have either fallen apart or have a mile-long waiting-list before a young boy can access them. Your generous donation will help to provide an opportunity for adventure, reflection, and introspection for many of the young men in my care.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
