Miss, I Need A New Book!
My students need high-interest young adult reading material.
"I teach eighth grade language arts in an urban school district. I am truly a lucky teacher, because my students love to read!
My students' favorite part of language arts class is Book Clubs.
Groups of students select a text to read, discuss, and analyze together. Choice of reading material is an integral part of Book Club, so it is necessary to have high-interest books on hand that students will WANT to read. My district has provided many excellent books that the students enjoy, but they read them so fast that I run out of books to give them! My students and I are resourceful -- we borrow additional books from school and town libraries, and purchase some titles. However, it is sometimes difficult to find multiple copies of the books we need at affordable prices.
The resources I've requested will give my students more options when they are choosing books. Previous students have enjoyed these titles and I think they will be a hit! There's no better sight than a room full of eighth-graders all engrossed in their books.
The more students read, the more their reading fluency improves.
This means better grades in all classes, higher standardized test scores, and -- most importantly -- a lifelong ability to comprehend, analyze, and evaluate information in texts. By donating to this proposal, you can help children develop skills that will make them more productive and independent... not only for this school year, but for the rest of their lives.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
