Reading library for REACH students

The cost of 24 books including Jurassic Park and the Chronicles of Narnia from Barnes and Noble is $349, including shipping and <a target="new" href="" onclick="g_openWindow('', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I teach reading intervention to High School students at Pittsburg High School. These students are in an intense 3 hours per day program designed to bring their reading and comprehension skills up to grade level. Unfortunately for them the program design makes it look and feel like elementary school assignments. Although I cannot change the structure or content of the program, I can offer them a chance to have free reading of books that are more interesting, and on their reading level in my classroom. I am writing this proposal to ask for the funds to build a classroom library with a variety of books for both my REACH (Reading Enriches All Children) and Sheltered English students, to encourage reading and keep them interested. These books will help countless students this year and in the years beyond. Your generous donation will help promote literacy to students who want it, but have yet to be given the instruction they need to achieve it. Thank you for your time.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
