Help me give my students literature books to build their literary canon. This will help with the AP Literature and Composition test that they are preparing for.
The classes I teach are to prepare students for college or the real world. Many of the students are timid and shy, but they are rigorous, supportive, and caring. Some have potential to be great leaders anywhere. My students have ownership of their own learning and have their own goals, but I need to show them that the world will have hiccups. I tend to prepare them for that since they are all individual and different. They are passionate and have strong desires.
I build a community within my classroom where they will be comfortable being themselves.
Since many are afraid to share their thoughts, I make the environment less uncomfortable so they get the courage and break from the "me" syndrome. I tend to teach them about real world scenarios and why we should care more. I try to teach leadership qualities and hope that they become global citizens.
I have implemented community and service learning into my curriculum to have the students not only think about academics, but about real world issues and how they can make a difference even if it is small within their school, community, and the world.
Our selection of books needs help. We have some books but we still need more. I am starting literature circles so my students can have a choice to read some great literary classics. And we are missing a few.
The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading and writing.
My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word. These selections are will help with just that. Invisible Man and The Suns also Rises will help them build their literary canon.
