My Students

Although I work in a high needs area of Long Island where the majority of students are from the low socio-economic class, my particular students are at even more of a disadvantage as my classroom is full of students who do not know English.

Most of my students are recently arrived from various countries in Central America and may not have had a traditional schooling experience.

As the Native Language Arts teacher, I am responsible for enhancing student learning in their home language as well as support their learning in their English class.

My Project

Each spring, our 8th grade studies the Holocaust. Traditionally, we read the diary of Anne Frank in ELA, but for reluctant readers as well as students still learning English, it can be a difficult and frustrating experience.

I would like to include my native language classes in this Holocaust unit by reading certain books in their native language, Spanish.

Reading the books in Spanish will help enhance their reading skills in Spanish and will also provide students with background knowledge in their Social Studies class as they study WWII. Having access to books in the native language lets my students be included and active participants in the unit.

Please help me give my students Spanish copies of The Boy In The Striped Pajamas to help enhance their understanding of WWII in their native language.
