My students need science classroom library of 29 books such as "World Without Us" to see that science can be interesting.
I teach biology at a brand new high school in Kentucky. We were added due to overcrowding at the other three high schools in the district. We literally are starting from scratch. The district does not have money to buy the non-essentials due to budget cuts at the state level.
First, my students don't see how science impacts their life. They can't see how reading about science can be entertaining. Second, my school's library has mostly bare shelves. If I get them to read, where are the books for them to check out?
I think that having science-related books that are aimed at teens will show them that reading about science doesn't have to be boring. This worked at my previous school, but the books were bought with department money, so they had to stay there. These books will be available in my classroom and will benefit students for years to come.
Please give my students the chance to see that science is relevant and fun. Help teach my students that reading can be entertaining. Lifelong readers start here!
