I would like to update my class library to create a more enticing selection for my 6th graders. My students helped to create a list of books based on student interest, topic, and author diversity.
All students who come through my classroom will get access to a more diverse offering of books that interest today's students and current topics of interest.
Having a library of books that entice students to read as much as possible would be the definition of success. The list was also generated with a diversity of ideas, genders, and cultures in mind.
I also have included a class set of the new Bill Gates book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster, which is a great book that fits in with my semester-long physical science-based climate change unit. The book focuses on solutions and bases those ideas on current evidence and the amount of carbon reduction each solution will generate.
I will buy the books from Word After Word.
I am my own grade level and subject team, so yes. :)
