Literature Clubs for Advanced Readers

The cost of these Books for Advanced Readers is $277, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

The group of students that probably get the least attention in most middle school classrooms is the advanced reading students. This year, I have about 10 students who are advancing beyond the grade level reading. With these 4 sets of books, I will be able to help them and any other students in the future continue to progress rather than stagnate because of their success. I chose these 4 titles because they are classics in not only children's' but also adult literature. I hope that with these books I can open up my advanced students to a life of literature and the love of reading.
