Mrs. Fett from Hamilton MT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Boys Are Back in Town

My students need a class set of novels to read, so we can conduct literature circles.

My Students

Our 6th grade class is comprised of approximately 130 excited learners! We live in a small, rural community with a large percentage of students on the free and reduced price lunch program. Even with low economic backgrounds, these students come to school eager to learn, and excited to have opportunities to read and write in my classroom. Our school is extremely outdated, so it’s important to me to make our classroom inviting so that our awesome kids will want to come to school and learn every day!

My Project

Since today’s young readers tend to be female, there are a plethora of novels available with female protagonists. As for the boys, there seem to be a lot of science fiction novels with male protagonists, but other genres seem to be overwhelmingly represented by female protagonists. It is important to me to provide multiple perspectives in my classroom, and during our first novel study I’d like to add a novel from a male protagonist to the list of choices. Both boys and girls would have the opportunity to select the novel, and it would make our selections for reading more versatile.
