Sparking a Love of Reading with OBOB Books!

My students need Oregon Battle of the Books books, and my most vulnerable students need technology to access the audio books!

My Students

Our school and students are unique in that they are tomorrow's environmental justice warriors! Our students come to our school to learn how to take action on environmental issues. We become a community of learners wanting to take action around common causes of environmental justice, both locally and globally.

Literacy, however, often takes a back seat to social media, and I want to encourage and reignite their love of "reading for the sake of reading!" Reading for the love of talking with others about a book they love.

Giving the students access to these high-interest books could be just the thing to help my 13 year old students fall in love with reading again.

My Project

Many of my middle school students would read more often if they had greater access to exciting titles. Access to these OBOB book choices, and having easy access to technology for my most vulnerable readers, would do wonders to spark a renewed interest in reading for these middle readers.

I have chosen these Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) titles to encourage wider reading among genres for my students - many of whom might otherwise spend their time on social media instead of buried in a good book like all middle schoolers should be from time to time!

The Chromebooks would be of great use particularly to my most vulnerable readers who benefit from Learning Ally, Tumblebooks, and other tech resources to access reading and writing about reading. These Chromebooks will also help all students in my class access technology for various reading an writing projects.
