My Students

SOS... Save our students and help educate them on past historical events that took place.

My students do not get to participate in many Social Study activities.

Our school focuses more on reading and math. To motivate students to become interested in history, I want to engage them with the sinking of the Titanic. Involve both language arts and social studies to educate our students about the past. Show students that history can be fun to read and act out.

My Project

It is important that history does not repeat itself, however if our students are not learning history in the classroom, it is possible to see it repeated. I want to teach history through historical fiction within our language arts classroom. I want to give inner city students resources that will better prepare them to succeed in high school. Learning history through read and acting will help grow as individuals and learners. I want my students to take a journey into the past to experience what others went through.

By teaching the past we will improve our future.

These students need to know the importance of historical events and the impact that event had on society in the past and now in the present. Please help me teach history through literature.
