I teach College Prep. Chemistry in a comprehensive high-need (62% Title I) charter high school in southern CA.

Students need to read chemistry from a narrative point of view and not just a collection of facts in the manner that textbooks present.

The books that I am requesting are about explaining science in a very simple manner. These books are from the science masters series. The science master series has leaders in various science fields explaining science to the public in a very rich narrative style.

You will make it possible for my students to discover chemistry is more rich than a collection of facts and formulas. Your help will ensure that my students will learn chemistry through literature.
