The Center of Learning in a Literacy Classroom

library1

I’m working with teachers in a school with a high percentage of students on free and reduced lunch. Today they have the entire day to organize their classroom libraries. I’m so excited that they’re given time to undertake such an important endeavor. The library is the center of learning in a literacy classroom.

I found an amazing classroom library online here. A little bit of research revealed that this school in Troy, MI has only 4% of students who receive free and reduced lunch.

For educators who work primarily with economically-disadvantaged students, I think it’s important for us to continously seek out information about what is happening in more affluent schools. Our kids deserve the same rich experiences and resources.
