My Students

My students are middle school students in eighth grade. Many come from very low socioeconomic status homes. We are in an inner city neighborhood in the fifth largest school district in the nation. Being in a large school district does not mean there is a lot of money for education. Honestly, it's the total opposite.

My students have a fervor to learn, but I need your help to bring that learning to life for my students.

Please support my project to help make my students' education more meaningful and, in turn, help make huge a difference in their lives.

My Project

The Araboolies of Liberty Street will serve as a text that my students can use to learn allegories. They will be able to identify the symbolism within the story and explain how allegories are used to convey an underlying message regarding political or moral situations. They will be able to compare and contrast this text with Eve Bunting's Terrible Things: An Allegory of the Holocaust. In addition, both texts will allow my students to gain a better understanding of the Holocaust. Finally, my students will be able to use the texts as models for writing their own allegorical stories about the Holocaust.
