My students each need 50 copies "Lord of the Flies" by William Golding.
My school is in a high need community where 98% of the students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. I am a Teach for America teacher teaching Freshman English.
My school provides no literature books for my students. I do the majority of my teaching from photocopies of texts. This year I would like to give my students books to take home so they have a chance to read outside of the classroom.
If my students have a copy of Lord of the Flies they would be able to take a piece of literature that aptly applies to their lives and read it on their terms.
