About this Campaign

I would like to create literature circles or book clubs in my classroom based on high-interest contemporary books my students would want to read. My students need to read books that are relevant to their own lives. I want my students to love school, and I believe I can get them to love school by fostering a love of reading. Beyond simply reading books that are more interesting to them, students will also be discussing the books with others in the class who are reading the same books, using a book club type format.

I am hoping this will allow my students to form bonds with other students in the class and open the lines of communication. Students need to read to be better writers, and they need to read to learn empathy and how to respond to the world around them.  By providing students with these high-interest books, they will become better writers and more empathetic towards those around them. 

I would like to purchase 10 copies of each of the following books:

Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orisha)  $142.40/total
The Hate U Give :  $141.11/total
