Project Title: One Book and Countess Opportunities

Teacher: Mrs. Hartpence

School: Plainfield Academy for the Arts and Advanced Studies, grades 9-12

Mrs. Hartpence's Project: Providing my students with these novels will give them a chance to see the world in multiple views. I have bought books for my students in the past and their faces when they see that their teacher listened to them, is so rewarding.

They are reading on their own because someone cares and because they are interested in the content.

These books on the list have been a part of theirs for a while now and I know that they will be touched by so many students. I am thankful that they have the chance to discuss literature and stories from people around the world with these novels.

My students enjoy reading and discussing and even better, sharing their novels with other students.

Project Goal:  $680

Still Needed:  $530
