Don't Judge a Man Until You've Walked in His Moccasins

My students need 25 individual copies of "Walk Two Moons" with a teacher guide and CD in order to participate in a class shared reading experience.

My Students

"Don't judge a man until you've walked two moons in his moccasins," is just one of the life lessons in this book. What an awesome tool to teach these lessons as the year begins, triggering rich group discussions and fostering learning of life lessons.

There are 24 students in my inclusion class: 12 girls and 12 boys, 6 special education, and 7 ESL (English as a Second Language) students.

Our school is a public, inner-city school, where 65% of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch. My students are spunky, humorous, eager to learn and love to read. Although 60% of my students are reading below grade level, they have a heart to learn and succeed. When I read books aloud, they frequently ask me to read more, demonstrating their love to learn!

My Project

To provide individual "Walk Two Moons" books for each of my students. This will enable them to have their own copy to read along for shared reading opportunities, as well as in small group settings. They will be able to look for answers to literature response questions in their individual books, and participate in rich text discussions surrounding life lessons this book communicates. When students are able to have their own book to refer to as a resource, their discussions are so much more deep and meaningful. Also, providing a CD of the text would enable my lower readers to read along as the book is read aloud, helping them to not frustrate as easily.

Affording each of my students this book, will create even more of an excitement for them to read.

By each student having a copy, they will follow along more closely and consequently, learn more than if they just heard the story read aloud. Individual books provide more ability to access information such as vocabulary, additional information pertaining to text questions, and rereading for understanding. Providing students with their own individual books would have a huge impact on my students!
