Basic Supplies Needed

My students need 25 copies of the book Night by Elie Wiesel.

My Students

The power of a book is extraordinary. It can take a child to a whole new world and allow them to discover themselves. A book such as Night gives us a unique perspective into underlining, transcendent themes, that affect humanity.

Our school is in one of Detroit's toughest neighborhoods.

All of my students live below the poverty line. Although their situation is challenging I am constantly inspired by their grit and desire to learn. They seek to better themselves and their peers.

My Project

My students will read the book Night as a part of a unit that seeks to expand literacy skills through examination of genocide around the world. Students will meet in literature circles twice a week to discuss this book and then apply the theme and lessons learned in conversation and writing.

Many of my students do not know basic world history.

They also struggle to read at a middle school level. This book will expand their reading abilities while teaching them about one of the most horrific, yet impacting events in world history. It will teach them about a culture extremely different from their own while allowing them to draw ties to their history.
