Need New Novels To Indulge Inquisitive Intellects

My students need new novels to use for our fantasy unit.

My Students

Our students need novels, which are engaging and motivating. Most of the novels in our building are older, worn and tired, and fail to light our students' fire for reading!

As part of an urban district, our students face many challenges.

They rise to them, however, with grace and a hunger for success and knowledge. Novels are a means of both dealing with and escaping the world. Fantasy novels are the best opportunity for students to dig in and sharpen their critical thinking!

My Project

These novels are part of popular culture, but have classical myths and significant themes developing the storylines. Students will be excited to read a novel which has been made into a movie and stories to which they can relate. They will learn that literature reflects life, and that anything is possible.

Having these novels will not only help with motivating students to read, it will also make them feel important and special.

New books are a great way to show kids they and their minds are cared for!
