Mrs. Brooks from Cypress TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need accessible copies of "Romeo and Juliet (No Fear Shakespeare)" by William Shakespeare to support their reading and comprehension.
My 9th graders are incredible students who all share a love for learning and empowering themselves with knowledge. However, a large portion our school's 9th grade population is economically disadvantaged and this creates a disadvantage for these students who are sitting in class. I want to be able to further encourage my students' love for reading and to strengthen their mastery of skills associated with reading.
There is an ever-growing need to support our students because so many are not able to purchase the books that would engage and interest each young adult sitting in my classroom.
My goal is to advocate for them in hopes of supporting their learning needs.
English is such an incredibly unique subject because it allows students to learn about humanity, cultures, and about themselves. English class is more than just writing and reading; it is about learning hidden truths, finding a connection to someone else, and sharing perspective. A book's true purpose isn't to only read a story, but to experience life lessons through the pages in a safe and engaging classroom environment.
Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" is a tool to challenge and motivate students towards higher level thinking, engaging, and learning.
This specific drama has been able to bridge connections with young adults throughout time with its characters, conflicts, and morals. It brings up "real life" issues and allows for healthy discussion over key topics that students feel passionately about.
Please help assist me on my journey to support and advocate for my students. They truly deserve the opportunity to experience Shakespeare and the life lessons his characters highlight with the proper language support to assist their reading comprehension. Not only will this version of "Romeo and Juliet" assist them in their reading, but it will promote their love for language as they expand their vocabulary, foster deeper connections to characters, and allow them to see similarities between modern pieces and other cultures.
