My Students

This project will benefit my high school classes from CCHS. My students are a very diverse group of individuals, both socioeconomically and ethnically. Actually, 34% of students at my high school are economically disadvantaged and total minority enrollment is 75%. My students are very proud to say that we are the fourth most diverse district in the nation.

What I love about my students is their joy in connecting with others.

They love to get to know who I am as a teacher and they appreciate getting to know each other's stories as well. I think they have this appreciation because we are such a diverse school, and finding commonalities in our differences is what brings us together.

My Project

These Just Mercy book copies would help build my classroom library and would be good reading suggestions for my students, when doing their Independent Book Projects or even maybe starting an optional book club.

I'd like to offer more diversity to my classroom library, so that the literature I have available is more culturally relevant and can go along with the social justice themes that we work with in class.

I would lend these book out to students who would otherwise not have their own copy or not necessarily choose this book on their own.
