Mr. Staenberg from Oakland CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Uniting Reading, History and Accessibility

My students need a copy of Kindred by Octavia Butler that can be read, annotated and taken home.

My Students

My students are capable and dedicated, but they require additional resources in order to realize their potential. In total, I teach 110 ninth-grade students in East Oakland, California, but they cannot be accurately reduced to such a large number; instead, they are 110 individuals standing at the crossroads of their first year of high school.

If given the proper opportunity, I am confident that these young men and women can change the world.

With this donation, I hope to elevate a group of bright minds by bringing history to life and with that, provide the critical service of engaging my students in a classroom environment. Thank you for your consideration.

My Project

In requesting 110 new books, I know that I am asking a lot; unfortunately, my students need a lot and then a lot more after that. We need to hold books, fold corners, jot notes and know that they are ours. Each of my students can deeply benefit from having this opportunity.

Allowing each student to read and possess a copy of Kindred will facilitate the building of a far more personal relationship with the course material.

As the school year progresses, we will study race, ethnicity and identity, but it will be this reading (and your donation) that truly captivates and introduces students to the material.
