You Can Help Our Students Develop a Love of Reading
With These Donors Choose Programs
WHS teachers have commited to improving reading skills across the curriculum this year. As a faculty, they are working to include more reading in all subject areas while teaching students strategies to improve comprehension and fluency. English teachers Melissa Stover and Lacey Hackett are taking it a step further. Their goal is to develop life-long learners through a love of reading. Each of these teachers has worked with students to establish reading goals for the school year. The teachers recognize that to increase reading with all students, they will have to increase the reading materials which are available. While there are great books in the school library, it is also important to build classroom libraries so that students will have more choices.
Mrs. Stover’s 10th - 12th grade students worked to develop a list of books they would like to add to the classroom library. Then with Mrs. Stover’s help, they submitted the list to Donors Choose. You can view the list of book and make a donation to the students’ project here.
After discussing students’ interests, previous reading, and current goals, Ms. Lacey carefully chose books to inspire her 7th – 9th grade readers. She has a wide range of reading abilities and interests; she hopes to challenge her students and build stronger readers with this Donors Choose project. You can view her list of books and donate to Ms. Lacey’s project here.
