My Students

My students are just beginning their high school career. They come from many backgrounds. Some don't see those backgrounds represented in literature. Others see only their background reflected in their reading. They are willing to read even if they struggle!

My Project

Engaging reading material is the goal of every ELA classroom. Reading is a way for students to experience events, emotions, and viewpoints they would not normally get the opportunity to see.

Books from a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives help students not only strengthen their reading skills, but grow their ability to empathize with others as well.

Every book in my classroom library was chosen with students in mind. The best way for them to get better at reading is to continually choose challenging stories that interest them. Independent reading time is a priority in my classroom, and these books will great additions to that time!
