My students fill my classroom, literally and figuratively, when they enter English 9. They are brimming with anecdotal stories of their last class period or an event the day before. Their worlds expand daily, and as freshmen, they are eager to make sense of it all. Their energy is contagious.
I teach in a high-poverty, low income urban school district, yet my students are filled with hope.
The hope that their hard work matters, that their goals are attainable, and that what we do together is meaningful outside of our classroom.
Last year's freshmen loved Reading Workshop; so much so that the most sought after titles have gone missing. Please help replace them!
Yummy, The Hate U Give, the first books in both the March and Monument 14 series, and several other titles are in high demand.
I would love to provide this year's freshmen with the same engaging literature.
The impact of Reading Workshop continues to be astounding. Students request additional reading time, and last year, reading levels went up for students previously disengaged in literature.
Because Reading Workshop is so successful, I am looking to support another group of incoming freshmen with the most requested titles of last year.
