My goal is to see my students choose to read for pleasure. Most of my students do not have the ability to find books that interest them. I want to be able to provide a wide range of genres to stimulate their minds.

Goal

My goal is to see my students choose to read for pleasure. Most of my students do not have the ability to find books that interest them. I want to be able to provide a wide range of genres to stimulate their minds.  

 

What will be done with my students

I would like to see a classroom library that provides a wide variety of genres (current titles) to stimulate my students' to read. My students are constantly reading in their content areas of science, social studies and language arts, however, I want to provide more. I want to see them open a book for pleasure and see that reading opens so many doors. I want them to imagine, discover and connect to all of the endless possibilities that reading can do.  

 

Benefits to my students

I am hoping that my students will find a genre that they connect with. My ultimate goal is to see them love what they are reading and not want to put it down. Maybe they will even share their new found love for reading with their children.  

 

Describe the Students

I teach adult education students ranging in ages from 16 to 24. They are typically mid to high level performers who have not finished high school for whatever reason. They have chosen to come to my adult education class to obtain their high school diploma. 

 

Budget Narrative

I will use the money to purchase books from Barnes and Noble using my teacher discount.
