2016-2017

Classroom Reading: $765

My students are in need of more books! We are planning on expanding our readership into South America. We need to read The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende. Unfortunately, we only have 35 copies for around 120 students. I really want my students to have equal access to challenging and interesting literature. With this novel, we will be able to complete creative and compelling projects that require the students to collaborate with each other verbally, in writing, and using technology.
