The Hate U Give

Help me give my students the opportunity to read The Hate U Give.

  • $472 goal

This project expired on December 1, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are a wonderful group of passionate, diverse learners from a wide range of racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Unfortunately, these kinds of teens are rarely featured in the books in middle school book rooms.

My students are eager to read about kids like them, facing important issues in today's complex world.

I hope that, through Donor's Choose, they can gain access to texts that can act as windows, mirrors, and bridges for them, sparking a love of reading that will last a lifetime!

My Project

Students need to read stories that reflect their life experiences like a mirror, give them a view of a new world like a window, and let them cross between the two like a bridge. Stories like this help students build empathy -- but it can be really hard to find the kind of high quality literature that students need.

Angie Thomas' award-winning novel The Hate U Give does all of this and more.

I can't keep copies on my shelf!

Through this project, all of my students will have the opportunity to read this gripping story together, heightening their engagement as they grapple with some of the most important issues facing young Americans today.
