Classroom Library

The Classroom Library was created to provide students access to a wide range of books right at their fingertips in the classroom. Check out a list of titles that can be found in the Classroom Library via Goodreads.

Research states that students read 50-60% more in classrooms with adequate classroom libraries (Catapano, 2009; Morrow, 2003; Kim, 2003; Neuman, 1999). *

Between 2015 and 2018, the Classroom Library grew from 200 books to 2,000 books.

During the summer of 2018, I decided to donate portions of my classroom library to interested individuals, including former students and new English teachers entering the profession. Check out the stacks of donated books below:
