Mr. Domenick from Oakland Park FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Book That Will Empower My Girls

My students need a book that empowers girls and educates boys. So I chose "Reviving Ophelia."

My Students

This is for my wonderful 11th and 12th grade English students from an inner city high school in South Florida. They come from all walks of life.

Most of them cannot afford new books, and that is an important reason I'm creating this project.

I also want to use it for future generations.

Everyone of my students will be grateful for your help. At this point they've spent 3-5 years in secondary education. This may be the first time anyone has donated to their cause.

My Project

If you walk into the bookroom at my school, you will find that the majority of books feature as their main character a male protagonist. The few books that feature girls as the main character or subject do not serve to help girls deal with their current problems or complexities. Devastating findings have shown that girls are suffering the loss of self-esteem and the decline of academic achievement. In the United States, girls are at high risk for academic failure, substance abuse, pregnancy, sexual disease, and suicide to a degree unimaginable to most parents and teachers. In my curriculum, I wish to find texts that empower these girls. I teach a non-fiction unit each year, and I wish to add this book to the selection of texts. What will follow is a variety of reader-response assignments that examine all of the underlying problems that girls face. Students will write essays, dialogues, letters, and narrative pieces.
