The Hunger Games

My students need 24 copies of the book "The Hunger Games" to read and study during a resource specialist Language Arts class.

My Students

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by a page of words? Spent hours trying to decode a word? Felt bored? Drawing no connections to your world? These are the challenges my students are facing daily. As they getting ready to give up; my last hope is to introduce them to a new, fun, and adventurous book.

First of all, my students are funny, smart and eager to learn and see a new world.

They have been diagnosed with a learning or behavior disabilities, but don't be fooled because they are wise beyond their years. These students attend a Title I middle school located in a challenging neighborhood. Many of them are second language learners, often from single parent and/or low economic households. Very often, school is the most safe and consistent aspect of their lives.

My Project

As an end of a year project, I would like to have a class set of The Hunger Games so each student can read at their own pace, enjoy the pleasure of reading, and just take a book home to share with their families. Students will receive differentiated activities and individual instruction to address their specific needs and interests.

I want my students to get the same opportunities as any other students.

Most often, special education students receive hand-me-down or discarded materials. Rarely are the materials chosen specifically for their needs and interests. A small item such as a new book can go a long way in making those students feeling valued.
