Mr. Blaho from Camden NJ is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Hate u Give By Angie Thomas

My students need to read great literature to be moved and motivated to succeed in life!

My Students

My students attend an inner city magnet school with a medical infusion. Because my students come from all over the city, many leave their house at 5:00am and take two public transportation buses to arrive to school every day.

My students are determined and motivated to do their best.

My students want to have a career in medicine and attend a top college and receive scholarships. These are good reasons for students to be engaged and competitive with each other and other students from other districts.

My Project

My students are always fretting that the author’s and the stories they tell aren’t recent or relevant enough to their unique lives. Growing up in Camden, New Jersey can be a difficult experience. Students face difficulties outside the classroom that can make forming a genuine connection to the literature an exceedingly difficult task, especially in their ever increasingly technological world. They need to read something that speaks to them directly and holds their interest long enough to grasp the fundamentals of character development, plot, theme, and the myriad of literary devices displayed in this critically acclaimed novel. I am thrilled to think that I can teach a classroom that prides itself in relevant, captivating fiction.
