My students need 32 copies of "The Lightning Thief" novels and study materials that will help them to comprehend information better.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
At-risk high school students have a higher drop-out rate than those at comprehensive schools. The goal for my students is to have them become active readers so that they will continue to learn and grow after high school. Save a child, one book at a time.
These are at-risk high school juniors and seniors at a continuation high school who have one last chance to graduate high school.
Our average reading level is at the 6th grade comprehension level, which means they can barely understand the newspaper.
These students learn to read best by reading and listening to a story as it is read to them, stopping periodically to answer thought provoking questions and discuss literal and metaphorical meaning. Because they will be using all facets of communication, these materials will enable them to read, listen, speak, and write about thought provoking questions in preparation for life. Every student will benefit from both their peers and their teacher through class discussions.
Your donation will make a difference by adding reading materials that are both interesting and educational for students at the high school level.
Because they learn better by both reading and listening to the material, they will also be answering short answer questions verbally and in writing. Reading, listening, speaking, and writing information enables them to understand the importance of how to communicate effectively and prepare them to become productive citizens in society.
