Ms. Lyles from Murray KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a modern take on British literature. After having read Beowulf, and King Arthur, I think they need a more modern novel to compare.
I have regular English IV students. Many are college-bound, but many are interested in on-the-job training or entering a technical training program. Many are reluctant readers, so I am trying to inspire them with more interesting reading choices. I want reading to become more fun for them in the future.
In my rural school I am attempting to encourage a love of reading and studying so that my students will become informed citizens and will be more creative in their way of thinking.
By reading Sherlock Holmes, my students will be exposed to a different view of life and a different thinking process. This should open their minds to other ways of doing things, sparking creativity in problem solving and discovery, enabling them to be better citizens in the world.
My seniors are about to graduate and enter the real world.
Often employers say that new graduates don't employ enough problem-solving strategies and need to be trained in creativity. Whether they are entering college, entering the workforce, or entering some other type of training, being exposed to different views and ways of thinking and learning about them, should broaden their mindset to new options.
