Ms. B. from Denver CO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students culturally relevant graphic novels about leadership and taking a stand!
I work at a Title I school that is rich with diversity. I have students whose families originate from all over the planet and speak many different languages. It is exciting to see students sharing their rich backgrounds and languages with each other in our classroom community.
The 8th graders in my leadership course have been nominated by their teachers to take on a leadership role in the school due to their passion for learning and for helping others.
I also teach 6th grade science and reading and these books will be available to those students as well.
My 8th grade class is focused on growing student leaders through peer mentoring, community service, digital literacy and student leadership. This unit is intended to build literacy while reading graphic novels with a diverse representation of leaders.
We are requesting culturally relevant graphic novels about leadership and taking a stand!
These books were carefully selected because they deal with individuals taking a stand while facing real life challenges. Topics include: civil rights movement, the Vietnam war, gender identity, immigration and race relations in the United States. These novels deal with difficult topics, but ones that the diverse learners in my school need a chance to explore and discuss in a safe and structured environment.
This book study will give my students the opportunity to have choice in their reading. They will work with groups to read and discuss the text. They will then develop a website to present a summary, historical context, character analysis and how they choose to take a stand in their own lives. I hope that this unit will enrich my students and help them to see themselves as leaders.
