Mr. Johnson from Chicago IL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Outsiders

My students need 45 copies of "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach fourth grade in an impoverished neighborhood in Illinois. My students are behind in all subjects, but the most urgent is reading comprehension.

We have a lack of books, and especially a lack of books that are relevant to our students' environment and upbringing.

The Outsiders is a classic book, high-quality book. The story echoes my students' experiences. It is a book that they can connect with; a book that the students can sink their teeth into.

Your support can bring this book to our school, and give my students something they really want to read.

Mr. Johnson
Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
