Ms. Click from Fair Haven MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Pick Your Own Reading Material

Help me give my students books for choice in what they read: "Children who value choosing their own books subsequently develop elaborate strategies for selecting books and reported being more motivated readers."

My Students

My students are a motivated and hardworking group of seniors from our high school's Honors Academy. They choose to challenge themselves with Advanced Placement Literature in their senior year even though there are many simpler courses that would earn them their senior English credit. The students pick this challenge for diverse reasons: many simply to push themselves; many for the potential to earn college credit and to thereby mitigate some of the cost of college. In addition, many choose this challenge to put themselves in the best position they can for college, scholarships, and beyond.

My Project

Researchers argue that student autonomy increases student interest in reading independently (for fun). This interest diminishes when teachers overly control reading topics or materials; therefore, I provide my students with twelve minutes each day (approximately one hour a week) to read independently a book of their choosing. To help to encourage the less motivate readers who will not go to the library and for the students who do not have the money to buy books, I keep a classroom library. I hope to add these novels to my collection to add to the types of books my students like to read.
