My Students: Our students at the Jerry Knight STEM Academy are curious, motivated, and creative. They work collaboratively to solve real-world problems. The majority of our learners are identified as gifted and talented, and many of them are voracious readers.

My Project: I curate a classroom library, with books available for any learner to check out at any time. I would like to add more books to my library that are focused on science, technology, engineering, and math, to demonstrate to learners that literature and STEM are inextricably linked. I am planning on featuring these books through book talks, and if significant interest is shown, using them to help drive learner choice for future book clubs.

My Students Need: Fiction and nonfiction books that have a focus on the STEM subjects. In the past, some students have expressed puzzlement over why they are required to take a Humanities (English and social studies combined) course. I believe that by expanding my library to include titles that are STEM focused, it will help bridge this gap and show students that Humanities and STEM go hand-in-hand.
