I set up an account about a month ago and began working on a project where I could bring more reading into my classroom. Students need a chance to read something that is interesting and provides a cultural view that they are not familiar with. Unfortunately, it has been a month and I have only received one donation. AND…I only have like a month and a half left anyway before my plans are ruined.
I think Donorschoose.org could be a great resource for many teachers but only if they have some generous friends. I see a lot of projects go untouched. I shared it on Facebook, Twitter, and my account here on Tumblr and I’m not even sure if the one random person that donated was a person who saw it on one of those accounts.
Anybody have any ideas for how a classroom could find donations to get a small supply of books?
