Help me give my students books, especially books that they find interesting and engaging.
My students are creative and loving. They have joyous personalities and show up each day to learn. The majority of the students are on the autism spectrum and are working to increase their inclusion in general education classes (though they still have some special day classes throughout the week.) In our resource rooms, the students receive individualized attention to support them both socially and academically. In these smaller spaces, they can be themselves, laugh with peers who understand their humor and share their interests.
Our school is small which allows the students in our special education program to be part of a larger, supportive community.
The students participate in grade level activities such as year-long projects, field trips, and internships. While our school offers unique opportunities, it still faces challenges. We are a Title I school in an urban area and our school district is currently experiencing a fiscal crisis. In the middle of this unrest, our staff works hard to create a supportive and safe environment for our students.
My students need books that they find engaging and interesting. In our advisory class, we have 2 sessions of silent reading, but it is such a struggle as the students look for something to interest them. We are asking for books that they have specifically requested and identified as ones they want to read.
Providing students with books of their choosing is a great way to encourage reading.
What I love about this project is that these books were ALL picked out by the students. This is EXACTLY what they have stated they want and are willing to read. This is a project that lifts up the students' interests and celebrates their learning.
