Mrs. Rose from Tooele UT is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Cultural Diversity Through Art

Help me give my students Chinese calligraphy supplies to help them increase their appreciation for other cultures. The brushes and mats will help my students learn how to create Chinese characters and racks will help store them.

My Students

My 5th graders are amazing, hard working, caring, and optimistic. We work hard every day to create a positive community within the classroom. My classroom is unique in that we are a dual language immersion class. The students spend half of the day learning in English and the second half learning in Chinese. This leaves us little time for extra curricular activities such as art. I work hard to include opportunities for art with other learning objectives.

We work hard in our classroom to understand the diversity in our community and focus on what we have in common.

Our school is a title I school which can create challenges, but also opportunities. We face each challenge and look for ways to overcome them as a group. Our strength comes as we strive to help one another.

My Project

Our unique classroom is based upon students learning another language. The students have the opportunity to learn and appreciate other cultures, especially the Chinese culture. As the teacher I feel it especially important to use cross curricular components to expose my students to a variety of learning scenarios.

Chinese calligraphy incorporates both art, writing and reading.

Students can learn what characters mean while painting them. This ancient art form has multiple components that include: reading the characters, writing them with accuracy, art through painting them, and diversity in learning how the Chinese use it to relax and focus.

I would like to help my students use this beautiful art form to increase appreciation for diverse cultures in a fun interactive way that still meets standards for learning objectives.
