TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need 30 copies of Thomas Harris' Silence of the Lambs, so they're able to engage with a high-interest text.
As a teacher in a low-income community, my students face many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Currently, 90 percent of our student population receives free and reduced lunch. Most cannot depend on parents for school supplies, and many are purchasing supplies after working jobs after school. This project is meant to serve my three senior classes, who are in the last semester of their high school career.
My students are typically lower-level readers who are overcoming their pre-conceived ideals about what reading is.
Because of this, I encourage them to experience the act of reading through high-interest texts. There is nothing I appreciate more than watching my students get wrapped up in a story. Without help from generous donors, my students would lack access to texts that they can engage with and get lost in.
My students need a high-interest text that will boost their confidence and reading stamina. This is why I have chosen to study Silence of the Lambs. In class, we will use this book to learn more about literary analysis. While we read, my students will learn about plot development, character analysis, tone, literary devices, etc.
Your donation will improve my classroom by helping my students become better and more engaged readers.
During each session that we read, my students will learn what close reading means and how to do it, all while building their confidence level and reading stamina.
Finally, we will use this text to study themes that are relevant today. As a class, my students will unpack the novel to learn more about gender and sexism, identity, psychology and psychopathy, and more.
