My Students

My students are driven to succeed in school and are actively working towards college. They take rigorous courses, participate in many extracurricular activities, volunteer with community organizations, compete athletically, and some maintain jobs. They are multitasking personified!

Because of their focus on academic success, many of my students have lost the love of pleasure reading.

I want to rekindle this passion. Reading increases our understanding of ourselves, improves empathy, and gives us insight into others' experiences. These things are as important as their academic skills.

My Project

These books will help me rekindle (or foster) a love of reading in my students. I have planned Book Club Units and Independent Choice Reading Projects with a focus on contemporary, multicultural, and high-interest novels, such as the ones on this list. I want students of all reading levels to be able to find books that suit their talents and their interests.

With such a variety of new books in our class library, students can engage physically with the books to find their next reading adventure!

These books can show them new ways of looking at the world while also reflecting their own lives and interests, which is how lifelong readers are made.
