My school is located in a rural area in a small town. My students are mostly coming from agricultural or blue-collar backgrounds. Even though we are a small school, our diversity is high. We have a high Native American population at our school along with children with an array of different backgrounds.
Academically, this district has struggled in the past, but we are making great strides in all areas over the last couple of years.
We are so proud of our kids and their achievements!
My students do not have a lot of access to books. Most of my students do not have books in their homes. The only library in town is our school library. Our school is an economically-disadvantaged rural school. I want to change that by giving my students more access to really good books.
Teaching about the Holocaust is extremely important, especially with the current state of affairs.By providing high-interest and age-appropriate books, I hope to grow their interest in reading.
I want to give them book experiences as a class that they will remember. These books will allow me to teach the Holocaust through the use of children's books and books they can read and discuss in literature circles.
