Thought Provoking Literary Experience

My students need the novella Animal Farm which is a rigorous text that will ensure that the students all move into eighth grade with a common literary experience.

My Students

Our learning commons is a hub of activity for all types of learning situations for our whole school. I work closely with all of our individual educational teams and departments in seventh and eighth grade to make sure our students have what they need in the learning commons and in their classrooms that have an impact on their learning.

Our school is in a district that is experiencing a serious funding problem like many districts around our country and there isn't enough money to continue to improve our collection of print and electronic resources, provide common texts that all students read, or provide educational guest speakers and programming that will promote life-long reading and literacy skills that benefit all students in their future endeavors.

My Project

Animal Farm is a timeless allegorical classic that will open students’ eyes to the issues of our past, present, and future. It is a story that connects to our overall arching theme, “What does it mean to be human?” and the complicated issues associated with society, government, and interpersonal relationships. This novella will be the capstone literature experience for our seventh grade students.

We need your support.

In order for students to interact and engage with the text, it is essential that they have their own copy of the novella. We are not able to provide a consumable copy to every seventh grader, nor can all of our students purchase a copy of their own so I am seeking ways to fund this opportunity for our kids.
