Mrs. Mangrum from Kissimmee FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Love the Hate You Give

My students need a copy of The Hate You Give so that we can delve into it as a group for our last semester of school. This book has the potential to turn non-readers into readers.

My Students

How can we close the achievement gap when students do not have the necessary materials to succeed? A review of student grades and school-wide data indicate that students with disabilities are the lowest performing sub-group at our high school.

The students in my classroom vary in their challenges.

Many students speak English as a second language, therefore they have challenges with reading. Some are the bread winners of their home and spend as much time at work as they do at school. Although these are high school students, it is not atypical that a student reads with the fluency of a third grader.

Last semester we read a couple of chapters from a book called The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas. They LOOOOOVED this book and have been begging to read more. The problem is, I only have 1 copy. When these children beg to read, children who refuse to open a book, I have to do what I can to get that book in their hands. Would you like to help?

My Project

Since reading excerpts from my personal copy of The Hate You Give, my students have been begging for more of this book. As an Intensive Reading teacher, I work with students who struggle with and therefore hate reading the most. I believe this book will show them that there is a reader inside of us all.

Have you ever seen a teen who hates to read find a book that they cannot put down?

That is exactly what happened when I introduced my students to The Hate You Give. I simply could not read this entire book as a class without individual copies.
