Animal Farm

My students need 20 copies of George Orwell's novel, "Animal Farm" as well as one audio copy for my special needs students.

My Students

With the limited funding supplied by schools today, it is difficult for teachers like myself, to get the materials they need to help students understand many of the concepts discussed in class. To bring to life these themes, help is needed. Please do what you can!

A large percentage of the population I teach is considered "At Risk." Many come from broken homes that simply can not afford to buy school supplies let alone books/novels.

Therefore it is critical for people to help and give what they can to support the learning and provide an opportunity for these needy students. Please help and give them a fighting chance.

My Project

These resources can change the lives of so many of my students. It seems like such a minor request but there is simply little to no funding to get learning materials to help my kids succeed. Teaching about equality, justice are some of the many concepts that my students so desperately need to understand in order to help them realize that the world they live in is far larger than the neighborhoods they fight to survive in everyday.

This project is designed to help my students understand how oppression should be something that we as global citizens should not allow under any circumstances.

With recent events in Syria and other parts of the world it is clear that education on such matters helps teens and young adults better understand the need for action.
