Hooray! This project is fully funded
Help me intrigue struggling readers & writers with page-turning, non-fiction books about disasters! Research papers couldn't be easier to write using 30 bright, vivid, fact-filled books!
Let's help struggling readers learn how easy it is to write reports by using fact-filled books!
Research papers can be difficult to write without the correct reference resources. With 30 bright, vivid, fact-filled books, every student will do well on research reports! Students who hate reading and writing will love looking up information using graphic, non-fiction books with fascinating facts that engage struggling readers. By funding these 30 non-fiction books, you will make it hard for any reader to resist reading. These research books deal with contemporary themes, written in a fast-paced style to maintain student interest until the last page.
Students will take a series of natural disaster research books, get into groups of 5 to read about and document important facts. Students will chart interesting research facts about natural disasters. Students will share information about disasters using a gallery walk technique where every student will add more facts as they travel from group to group. Students will use books to learn how to cite correctly for research reports. Finally, students will use group information and individual research to create and present research reports to the class.
Non-fiction books never go out of style.
These fast-paced, contemporary writers keep students reading. These popular books have captivated reluctant readers for many years. Help me give struggling readers power-packed books for their reading enjoyment. I need books with various themes guaranteed to keep my students turning the pages until the very end! Help me build a class library for striving readers. We lost our librarian this year. Help me give the students a fact-filled education!
