Mrs. Wolfe from Petersburg VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Dear Martin, Thank You

Help me give my students a book that is relevant to their lives, that they can take home to read instead of only having as a class set to read during class time.

My Students

I teach honors and inclusion, with a varied demographic that spans many cultures and backgrounds. I have students with disabilities as well as gifted students, and each of my students is unique and amazing in their own way.

Some teachers have classes; I have families.

Over the course of the semester, my classes have grown to each have their own dynamic. With limited resources, I hope to provide the best educational experience possible to ensure that my students to succeed.

My Project

My students have recently watched "Freedom Writers" and were inspired and moved by the film. They want our next reading to be something as inspiring that they can connect with. In the past, my students have shown great interest in the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, and many have chosen to write about him during student-choice writing assignments. The resources at my school are quite limited, and the novels currently available in the quantity I would need for each student to be able to have their own copy to take home and read are mostly novels my students have already read in 6th grade, such as The Giver and Maniac McGee. I have chosen Dear Martin as it is a moving narrative my students can relate to and connect with. I hope to have these novels by February, to read for black history month. I have many activities I would like to do with this novel, and I would like to have my students end the unit by writing their own letters to Dr. King.
