My students need 40 copies of 'To Kill A Mockingbird' for their first novel unit of the 2013-2014 school year.
This project expired on December 8, 2013.
Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember what you felt like in high school the first time you read a novel and just couldn't put it down? My students are getting ready to begin a new year of high school and what better way to do so then with the classic, 'To Kill A Mockingbird'?
My students are excited to learn!
They are coming to school craving the routines and experiences that the high school structure provides. As a Title 1 school the majority of my students are on free and reduced lunch and would not be able to purchase their own copy of the novels we read in class. My students sit in classes of 30+ ready to learn from August through May. My students overcome challenges and obstacles that I could never begin to think of, they inspire me. Beyond everything my students continually push themselves to grow to be students prepared for college and the careers they choose to seek.
We are a large Title 1 public school and like most large, Title 1, public schools we struggle with additional funding for new books. The funding of this project will allow my students the opportunity to get to hold a new book in their hands! When reading novels in class my students are used to holding older versions of book, book held together with tape, or books that are even missing pages and this is not fair. The funding of this project would be an amazing opportunity for them to start the year off with a brand new book! This is a way for my students to feel the excitement of holding a book that no one else has ever touched, an experience some of them might not have ever done before.
This project is so important for a number of reasons but most of all because this is an opportunity for my students to get lost in a book, for them to know that despite all of the challenges they face and that surround them everyday, they DO deserve to have and read out of a brand new book!
