Let's Give Them Books!

Help me give my students physical copies of the books we'll be reading! These are: Bronx Masquerade, a collection of poems by high school students. We'll also read Long Way Down, a book about loss and revenge.

My Students

I teach beautiful Black boys and girls in Baltimore, Maryland. They are brilliant, creative thinkers with deep insights into their own lives and the world around them. They make me smile every day with their contagious laughter. Our classroom is a place of joy and learning, where my students own the space. They read books that matter to them, have conversations about their real-world experiences, and control the culture of the class: a culture in which each voice is heard and respected and appreciated for speaking a truth.

My Project

In the virtual world, it's more important than ever that students have access to physical copies of books. Many of my students have special needs, which makes it more difficult for them to read PDFs or electronic books. Having physical copies of the books encourages students to invest in the class and the readings.

For many students who may have very few (or no) books in the house, having a book that they will LOVE to read, which is their very own, can be a doorway to discovering their passions for reading, or writing, or creating.
