Love For Literacy: Building a Classroom Library

The Description

As a teacher, I want to provide all of my students with excellent learning opportunities. Part of that is exposing my students to high quality literary works regardless of reading level. That is why I want to build a more complete classroom library that includes books of all reading levels. This would allow my students to check out books that I could personally recommend based on their results in our small-group lessons.

I will be selecting all of the books that will be included in our classroom library, that way I can ensure that the books are accessible for all of my students. The texts selected will be a mixture of both fiction and nonfiction as it is important that students feel comfortable with both.

Every generous investment that you make will bring this excellent opportunity one step closer to my students. Please feel free to leave a comment if you would like to make a recommendation on a title to include in our library. Thank you so much for your support!

Back Up Plan

If I do not meet my goal, I will use the funds raised to purchase as many books for my classroom library as possible.

About the Creator

Picture the quirky, eccentric English teacher - you know the one who would jump up and down excitedly talking about the psychoanalytic interpretations of a text or gesticulate wildly about the double entendres found in a line of poetry - and you've got Ms. Jennifer Ward, high school English teacher. An interest in expanding opportunities for my public school students has me thinking about ways that technology can be used to connect my students to the authentic audiences. Technology has opened up the doors of my classroom, allowing my tenth grade students to learn where and when ever they have access. As a result, students are taking ownership of their education, sharing their writing with real audiences, and building confidence in their skills. But in a time when budgets are tight, the challenge is helping all students gain access to the same online opportunities.
