I am a Media Assistant for a high school in rural Pender County, North Carolina. We currently have 51% of our students receiving free lunch and 6.75% are English Limited. Being a poor county, with an increasing population, our funds are extremely limited. In addition, we have a very diverse social and economic pool of students. In the coming year our foreign language teacher would like to include a research project for her students that focuses on the countries of Central and South America. Approximately 60 students will be involved. Upon searching our available books, we discovered those students would have a difficult time researching those countries. At the present, there are not enough books for every student to check out. If there were more resources for her students to check out, then the student research project she has envisioned can become a reality. The first segment of books her students will need deal with the countries of Venezuela, Panama, Paraguay, and El Salvador. The books requested are entitled: Venezuela in Pictures, Paraguay in Pictures, Panama: A Country Study, and El Salvador: A Country Study.
