Mrs. Love from Kent WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mrs. Love's ProjectLIT Challenge

My students need books with characters, stories, and lives that show them the world is full of narratives, including theirs. Please consider buying these amazing books for students. Your donation will ensure students read engaging literature.

My Students

The students who pass through my classroom come from all walks of life. They never cease to amaze me with their drive, love of learning (even if they don't show it at first!) and willingness to take risks. It's time to provide them with an integrated, rigorous novel, and I hope you can help. I will be teaching in the Federal Way school district next year, and know that students crave these books: I keep my classroom library up to date, vet the titles, and develop engaging, deeply resonant and important discussions.

Please help: support the future you want to see.

My Project

ProjectLIT is a community of teachers, students, parents and supporters of amazing and engaging literature. I have vetted most of these titles, and each is a gripping, compelling narrative. Please consider any gift of a set of books for students.

Dread Nation, for example, amazingly takes the idea that the Civil War never dies, it's a monster, a zombie.

of an idea that can never be killed, but hungers for more destruction. It's an allegory that is relevant to our age.

My students come from all walks of life and need to read modern authors who look like them and know their stories.
