My Students

My students love to read. However, it hasn't come easy. I have students in my reading classes from grades 6 through 8. Each year we read high-interest novels, which have been invaluable to our achievement. However, this year, as well as the past few, our resources have become more and more scarce

My students are nearly 100% African-American, from low-income families and eligible for free lunch, and we live in a state where we have do not have a working budget and schools may not even open on time from year to year.

Needless to say, my students achieve success with obstacles placed in front of them that are out of their control. They are the reason I teach.

My Project

The book, The Hate U Give, by Angie Thomas is one of the most powerful YA novels to come out in a long time. This book is so important for all students to read. My school needs high quality novels for its eighth graders, especially a novel that they can definitely relate to.

My students are 100% African-American and The Hate U Give is such a timely novel for my students to experience.

This novel teaches such a powerful message that I think any classroom should experience it. We see too often on the news, and some of my students have experienced similar situations first hand. This book will help my classrooms more than you could ever know!!!
