I teach global history to an extraordinary group of bright and energetic 10th graders at a public school in the Bronx.
My students love all aspects of our global history class: reading, writing, and -- like all good New Yorkers -- debating!
They inspire me every day with their hard work and insights.
However, we need your support. Most of my students entered high school reading and writing below grade level. A binder is an important scaffold in building historical literacy and analytical skills.
Your support of this important school supply project will help me cultivate their enthusiasm, insights, and critical thinking skills. It will also help us prepare for the NYS Global History Regents Exam.
Each day, my 10th grade global history students interrogate the past and grapple with their understanding of our world today by analyzing primary and secondary sources, developing argumentative essays, and leading animated classroom discussions.
Binders are a classic organization tool to help scaffold the complex content and skills in a history class.
This project will provide one, durable 1/2" three-ring binder to each student. The completed binder will become their personalized study guide for the New York State Regents exam in Global History and Geography in June 2020 - a high-stakes history exam that is required for graduation.
This Avery-brand, heavy-duty binder is durable enough to withstand daily use all year.
