It's Like Lost, But with Teenagers

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.

You are clearly on this website because you believe that all children possess the ability to learn. By funding this project you can help the neediest of students learn from one of the greatest adolescent texts. Thank you for your time.
