262 students, or 50.7% of the student population at this elementary identify as Hispanic, making up the largest segment of the student body. A typical school in our town is made up of 20.7% Hispanic students, so this elementary has a drastically different ethnic distribution compared to other schools in the city. We have 28.2 % Caucasian students, 4.1 % students with more than one race, 1.9% American Indian, and 14.1% of Pacific Islander. All of our students are eager to learn and highly enjoy school.
I work at a school where 100% of our students qualify to receive free or reduced-price lunches.
Our school is located in a high poverty area of our town. We have businesses that are helping with essential needs such as gloves, shoes, clothes, etc. We need more help for the classroom necessities!
This novel has been brought to my attention by a team member at my school. She raves about this novel and about all of the great details that it has about the colony of Jamestown. I strongly believe that by implementing authentic literature along with our Social Studies textbooks, students will remember more and more about the early colony of Jamestown. This class set would ensure that each student has a copy in their hands where they can use context clues to understand important vocabulary, we can discuss story elements such as setting and plot to enrich their learning, and it will take them through Jamestown with interesting outlooks about the colony.
