American History In Primary Sources!

My students need a class set of the American Reader. We use it almost daily in AP US History. Many of them are too poor to buy their own.

My Students

My students are a very diverse group. They live in rural New Mexico and are widely disparate in socioeconomic status and ethnicity. Many students are Native American from the nearby Pueblo, many are Anglo, and many are Hispanic.

Many of my students are first-generation Americans.

I have some students who are very well-off, but I also have many students who are very impoverished. It's diverse; it's America!

These students are excellent kids. They are taking AP US history and want to learn! It is our duty to help them achieve their dreams.

My Project

My students desperately need a class set of the American Reader, a collection of primary sources fromAmerican history. We use it almost daily in AP US history. The course requires the students to buy the book for class, but many of them have privately told me that the book is too expensive for them to afford.

This book is necessary for the students to pass the AP US History course, and it breaks my heart that many of them cannot afford it.

It is expensive for me to make copies of every source we read, and I have already run out of paper for the year doing so. Please help my bright, dedicated students who cannot afford this book!
