Mr. Parker's Classroom Library Expansion

Help me give my students books for classroom library choices. I have been expanding my classroom library to the point that even students I do not teach are stopping by to check items out.

My Students

Everyone involved in education these days knows that students are very quickly losing the love of reading. If it isn't broadcast in 140 characters or less, signed with a hashtag, or attached to a funny picture, it does not register.

My students are still in the crucial stage of curiosity about the world and all things in it.

I want them to journey through others' experiences before they are lost in the vast blackness of social media. I intend to read a number of classics and discuss literature, words, and ideas with them in a manner that is slowly being lost to us. These students have individual dreams and unique outlooks on the world, and I hope to flavor those experiences with a broad base context full of richness and variety so that they can take a depth of thought, understanding, and outlook with them.

My Project

I have been expanding my selection of books for students to use for pleasure reading, and the time has come to once again garner more titles.

When students stop by to check out books or ask for pleasure reading advice, I like to have a diverse selection of titles available.

I often make suggestions for books I do not possess, and I would like to have a few more on hand to check out to some of my more precocious readers. I may not able to get them interested in the classics, but I find it much easier to get them interested in modern literature.
