I teach 7th grade Social Studies and Science at Dutchtown Middle School in Ascension Parish. We study American History in the 7th grade and we have a unit on the Louisiana Purchase. I would like a class set of books on the LA Purchase for my classroom. Reading the book together would really help my students to get a feel for what Pres. Jefferson and all new Americans were going through during the early 1800's. I believe it would spark more interest than simply reading the short section in our textbook. This was one of the most important events in the early history of our country and I believe these books would really help these children understand its significance. Thank you for your consideration and thank you for creating an organization that puts children first.
