Mrs. D. from Columbus GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Readbox Free Book Rentals

My students need books on topics like Coming of Age, Peer Pressure and Relationships to spark their interest in reading books that will create change in their daily lives.

My Students

Many of my students come from homes where books are not valued and the primary mode of learning is television. I want to give them another choice: books that deal with topics that they encounter or may encounter in their daily lives.

100% of my students in grades 9-12 are on free lunch.

Many of them are reading below grade level and need to increase their reading levels. Most of my students are male and have very little interest in reading classics, however, they are very interested in other people's stories. Most would not be able to buy a book and most don't have transportation to the local public library.

My Project

My students will use these books for independent reading and to open a dialogue with me and their classmates. They will read independently, with partners and with me. I am hoping that reading books about young people that are dealing with issues that they themselves may have already encountered or may encounter in the future will spark their interest in and foster a value of reading within them.

This will give my students an alternative to television and games books!

I envision my students making better choices in their lives as a result of reading books about young people that are dealing with issues that they themselves may have already encountered or may encounter in the future.
