"The average child from a professional family hears 215,000 words per week; a child from a working-class family hears 125,000 words per week; and a child from a low income/poverty household hears 62,000 words per week."
"In middle-income neighborhoods the ratio of books per child is 13 to 1, in low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is 1 age-appropriate book for every 300 children.

The students in my classroom struggle with generational poverty mind-set, book availability, and one on one booking reading at home. My project will establish a classroom library to foster the love of reading while equipping and empowering future leaders.
The resources listed in this project will allow all future students the opportunity to travel to destinations, discover cultures, grow emotionally, and socially through personal connections, inquiry and relationships throughout their journeys.

We should always encourage our students to read, and it shouldn't be dependent upon their individual literacy levels, ability to access books, or support systems.
The socio-economic status of the students in my classroom holds them back, please don't let access these tools continue the injustice. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” ... Dr. Suess.
