I am a 6th grade teacher of Language Arts and Social Studies who finds innovative ways to motivate my students to learn about the world around them. Although the main focus of 6th grade Social Science is the Ancient World, I want my students to read books which will expose them to different cultures at various times in history. My students come from an ethnically diverse background of mainly low income households in northeast San Jose and we are determined that they have an enriched and exciting curriculum. I teach Language Arts/Social Studies CORE to 3 groups of 6th graders, with about 98 unique students each year. My hope is to be able to purchase 6 class sets of paperback novels for use by students this year and for many years to come. My students and their parents may not have much in the way of material wealth, yet they have a desire to learn and to succeed in furthering their education and to become productive citizens and life-long learners. I am certain that this project, through whatever funding we can get, will greatly enrich the learning experiences of my students and will help them continue that dream.
