Mrs. Karrels from Appleton WI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students reading and writing opportunities they were deprived of growing up.
A large portion of our 7th and 8th grade population consists of students who receive free or reduced priced services and are considered at-risk. Forty-five percent of the student body are a minority race with 59% of all students economically disadvantaged. 14% are limited English proficient.
Our school is known as a trauma-sensitive school due to the number of students dealing with some form of abuse.
These are the years when several students speak up, usually for the first time, about their abuse, thus making school the last thing on their mind.
Several of the shelters in our community are in our attendance area, making us a very transient school. These students have several large gaps in their learning because it.
Not many students are read to as young children. Most households do not contain reading material so students may go the summer months without touching a book. School is the best way to put books into the hands of low-level readers.
With your help, we can minimize illiteracy in middle school.
The high interest novels will provide my classroom library with a more varied collection. Several of the novels have relate-able story lines for the student population at Wilson.
The two teacher resource books contain creative ideas for literature circles; and the other resource has high interest writing prompts that are tied to passages from books.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
