My students need 100 composition books to use as drafting notebooks for writing class.
Our school serves a highly diverse, low-income community full of bright, motivated students yearning for the opportunity to better their lives. By engaging in rigorous academic content early in their middle school careers, our school seeks to improve high-school readiness and provide opportunities to students who might otherwise be left behind by society. Unfortunately, however, there is little budget to cover the expenses associated with helping these students. My students need composition books in order to write the drafts of the various essays we will be completing this year. These notebooks will allow my students to have one place to keep all of their ideas and drafts together. This will also help teach them organization skills because we will develop a structured way to organize our notebooks. Right now, we are using loose-leaf paper to write our drafts, and it is unorganized and inadequate. By using notebooks, my students will have a specific place to write down and edit their ideas. The first project we plan on doing is to write a thank-you letter to a significant person in our life. Our literary focus this quarter is functional writing and by writing these letters, the students can develop their functional writing skills, as well as be creative in their own way. The increasing achievement gap needs to be halted. Your contribution to this endeavor will help in diminishing this gap and ensure that students from all backgrounds are exposed to challenging ideas and provided with equal opportunities.
