My students need books that they will actually enjoy. Each day the class participates in silent reading time called SSR (Sustained Silent Reading). Students are forced to read out of date novels that are far above, or far below their reading abilities. I have studied adolescent literature, and would be able to choose books that interest them, and allow them to enjoy reading. If I had the resources to purchase a new class set of books infused with themes and ideas that they can relate to, there is a chance I could share my love of reading with them.
