Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We are reading some classic pieces of literature in my classroom. We have completed a novel study on "The Giver" and are currently reading "Tuck Everlasting."

Growing up in a high-poverty area is not preventing my students from developing a love of literature.

My students are engaged in reading "The Giver" and "Tuck Everlasting" and want more! These great novels help us discuss deep and complex topics such as utopias and immortality.

My Project

I am requesting 5 copies of "Son," 5 copies of "Gathering Blue," 5 copies of "Messenger," 1 DVD copy of "The Giver," and 1 copy of "Tuck Everlasting" to accompany our novel studies. Having the accompanying films for each of these novels will give us an opportunity to further discuss the topics. We will also discuss how the authors and filmmakers took different approaches to convey the same messages by comparing and contrasting the films to the books. Additionally, the sequels will give my students a chance to explore works from the same authors.

These materials will give my students opportunities to engage in the complex topics covered in these two novels.

They will also help my students develop a love for literature and give them a path to continue that exploration.
