My Students

I love that my students are eager learners. I am consistently impressed by their initiative and resolve. Last year was difficult because of the pandemic, and my students had to adjust to a schedule of fully online, hydrid, fully in-person, back to fully online, and back to fully in-person several times. They faced this challenge with patience and maturity, and we were still able to have a great learning experience.

I love seeing their confidence grow as they become better readers, writers, and thinkers.

My Project

I feel that it is important to give my students the opportunity to read topical historical scholarship, especially from current developments in the field that emphasize the stories and research of communities of color, written by scholars of color.

I want to create a small but potent classroom library that focuses on American history, and I want to allow my students to freely check out books and bring them back.

We will use this library for classroom activities and assignments, where the students learn how to quickly identify an author's thesis, summarize their main arguments, evaluate their evidence, and create a classroom synthesis of American history. Their practice with these books will put them in a position to learn how to produce historical narratives, and their final project will be modeled on these books (though on a much smaller scale).

This classroom library will also help students continue to have access to books after the COVID-19 pandemic has limited their ability to go to public libraries.
