Mr. Rund from Brooklyn NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Magazines and Non-Fiction Books to Expand Horizons

My students need access to articles, magazines, and a variety of non-fiction texts to expand their knowledge about the world. Most of my students have never left NYC, and these books will show them the world.

My Students

This is a NEST class that supports general education students and students who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The general education students are selected to model social and emotional behavior and this is an integrated Co-Teaching class with two teachers.

My students are able to access grade-level material with the proper support.

Students with ASD receive Social Development Intervention (aka Social Club) to work on social skills. Most of these students are more interested in nonfiction and generally choose nonfiction books, which are limited. Our school itself is nearing the completion of our accreditation of International Bachelorette (IB) status. The school has a popular after-school arts program including violin, cello, dance, drama, art, and comic book drawing clubs. Our school also has a dedicated after-school sports department including basketball, soccer, fencing, yoga, fitness and a "girls on the run" club.

My Project

Students love to read books about topics they are interested in. When you are stuck with a book selection and you aren't interested in the topics, your motivation to read diminishes. However, when you can't wait to find out about a topic you are more likely to enjoy reading.

These books and magazines will help students with or without autism practice their reading skills.

Children, especially children with Autism, need books they are interested in. My project will allow all of our students to spend more time reading and less time trying to make their way through a book they aren't interested in.
