I teach students with cross-categorical special education needs in grade levels 6-8. My students have a wide variety of needs and abilities. This year I would like to focus on creating strategic, lifelong readers. We really need class-sets (10-12 copies)of the following titles: "Holes", "Homeless Bird", "Speak", "Esperanza Rising", "Copper Sun", "Home of the Brave", and "Loser". I spent the summer developing units of study for a variety of books and am eager to implement them. However, we do not have class sets of these titles. We do not have funding to purchase these class sets.
