Young Adult Lit Class Needs Great Books to Read

My students need 40+ high interest Young Adult literature titles to read for our upcoming Young Adult Lit trimester.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have been blessed with the opportunity to create a new class this year: Young Adult Literature. The students are so excited. However, our school is lacking high interest young adult literature. We need books they will really get into, books they will not want to put down.

Most of our students come from great families with few resources.

They are lacking money to buy their own books, and therefore they haven't been exposed to literature they love. Our school is in rural Minnesota, and most students have not had the opportunity to travel very far. Having access to great books will help take them places they couldn't otherwise go.

My Project

Do you remember the first book you just couldn't put down? Most of my students haven't had this memory yet. Can you help them get there? Having high interest young adult literature would be an invaluable asset to our classroom. When students have great books at their fingertips, they are much more likely to read.

Donations to this project will go toward the 41 high interest young adult literature books I've selected.

Students will have the opportunity to read them during our Young Adult Literature trimester. They are so excited for this class. Please help make it a great one for them by providing great books.
