Mr. Reynolds from Orlando FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the books that they've asked for like a mix of manga (Black Clover), novels (Dear Evan Hansen, Crossover), graphic novels (Click series, Sheets), and TV novelizations like Stranger Things and Steven Universe!
My students are a wonderful, intelligent, and hard-working group of young men and women who never cease to impress me.
Many of them came to our school fleeing hardship.
Almost half the students are Haitian and came to Orlando following the earthquake that devastated the country in 2010. Most of the Hispanic students who make up the other 47.9% of the school are Puerto Rican and came to Orlando due to Puerto Rico's economic crisis and the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria. As a result, you are just as likely to hear Spanish or Haitian Creole spoken in the hallways as English.
Although many of my students struggle with the language barrier, they embrace our creed and are committed to getting their reading levels up through daily independent reading.
The difference between success and struggle in high school, college and beyond is a student's reading level. Although numerous studies have shown that the best way to increase reading level is to simply read as much as possible, my district's curriculum focuses on dissecting short excerpts in an effort to improve students' analytical skills.
The only way for students to have meaningful, extended reading practice is to have them read at home; which means giving them books that they're excited to read on their own!
For this project, students were given the opportunity to browse for books on Amazon. After some discussion and debate, the students settled on a final list that most of them were interested in reading. It's an eclectic mix of novels, manga, graphic novels and TV novelizations!
They WANT to read these books!
