Example: My students are interested in social justice and we are wanting to read books related to immigration and migration. We need sets of books that support this theme and meet a variety of reading levels.
Example: We want to start a school-based book club. Our theme "Finding Your Home" allows us to explore different titles and relate it to various cross-curricular aspects including social studies, geography and English.
Again, please vary your wording to make this sound like you. . .
Example: My students need a class set of books for our classroom library that we can use to participate in our school's book club. This year's theme is Immigration and Migration: Finding Your Home. We will read various books that center around this theme including supporting family read nights, guest speakers related to immigration and migration and maker spaces that support this theme.
