CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A teacher at a Lowcountry school wants to give his students a diverse experience. He’s asking for books that expose them to unconventional and challenging ideas.

History class does not take a backseat to STEM instruction at Charleston Charter School for Math and Science.

History teacher Austin Lassiter says his students are creative and driven, and come to class looking for new challenges.

To keep them all on the same page, Lassiter needs more copies of classics such as Slaughterhouse-Five, The Odyssey, The Help, and a few others.

He is so close to completing the funding for his request on the Donors Choose website. He only needs $140 more.
