Mr. Nelson’s Classroom Edit display name

  • MacDonough Elementary School
  • Middletown, CT
  • More than half of students from low‑income households

Our students are a highly motivated group of young scholars from a racially and ethnically diverse school where close to 80% of students are eligible for free or reduced price lunch. Every day, they check out books from our classroom library to take home to read. Many of these books are history books. Our students share their new knowledge regularly with each other in spontaneous conversations at lunch, recess, and after school. With each new bit of historical knowledge, they form new connections between events and refine their perspectives. Just yesterday, a student raised her hand and made a connection between the American Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s and the revolutionary events in Libya!
