Mr. Sierra from La Joya TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaging History Through Realia & Memorabilia

Help me give my students primary source memorabilia sets so that we can analyze and study American History. Each of these sets helps us cover the Suffragette Movement, World War I and World War II.

My Students

I definitely have an awesome group of students this year. These students are witty, thought provoking, and hard to please. This year, I have had to pull out resources I have never used before, just to satisfy their craving for knowledge.

The students I serve are hard working and dedicated.

These students come from different backgrounds, and some are first generation college goers, since this is an early college high school. I am amazed at how far these students are willing to go to get what they want. They inspire me.

My Project

These memorabilia sets will help students engage in history by having a palpable document in their hands, rather that just a simple text book. These sets cover the history of Women's Suffrage Movement, World War I and World War II. Each set costs about $10.00 to $15.00.

History is always seen as something boring, because unlike science, there tends to be nothing to hold on to.

These sets, will make a difference in they way students see and engage in history. I hope that you, as a donor, will help me challenge my students to go beyond the world of text and into the world of history!
