My students need 30 great books including both high-interest and graphic novels.
My students love to read. Even the struggling readers get excited when we have time for silent reading! To help them continue their love and develop life-long reading skills, I need to keep providing them with great books to quench their thirst for reading material.
I teach in an amazing urban public middle school.
My school draws from a great mix of students. There is a wealth of ethnic, religious,and economic diversity in our school. I teach a 6th grade core class; this means I get to spend the bulk of my day with the same 32 students as we develop and learn during what is arguably the most awkward year of school.
My school doesn't have a lot of money for "extras". This means most of the titles in the library are old and irrelevant to today's teens. I've been slowly building a teen-friendly classroom library over the years and now have a pretty good collection of great Young Adult Fiction that can be read and shared with friends. The books I'm requesting are books that kids LOVE to read because they are fun and well-written. I can't wait to let my students get their hands on these books.
Research proves that student who read a book of choice at least 20 minutes per day do better not just in school but in life.
Reading creates ideas and inspires critical thinking in ways that are empowering. Your donation to this project will give my students a chance to fully realize their potential to become the amazing adults they know they can be.
