Ms. Lau from Boston MA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Exploring the Immigrant Experience through Diverse Texts

My students need books that reflect the cultural diversity and immigrant experiences of our school community. These essential texts will be used as part of a multidisciplinary unit about immigration.

My Students

Our school is home to a diverse community of learners, representing many cultural backgrounds. More than three-quarters of the students are from low-income families and rely on the school to provide the necessary tools for success. Our fourth graders are eager learners who love books; however, not all students consistently have access to books and technology at home. As teachers, it is our goal to ensure that our fourth graders have the tools necessary to become engaged readers, fluent writers, and great thinkers.

They are a great group of kids who deserve to have all of the resources they need to succeed.

My Project

There is nothing better than the excitement of opening a brand new book. We want to expose students to texts that reflect the immigrant experiences of themselves and their families as we explore all of the reasons that individuals may choose to leave their home countries.

We want our students to see themselves in the texts they read and to be able to connect and empathize with the experiences of others.

We want our students to read about these important experiences to gain perspective and to realize the distinctive contributions that various immigrant groups have impacted upon American culture. All of this would not be possible without these books. These books will not only benefit students who are in our classes this year, but will continue to have lasting impact in the years to come. Please support us in making this learning unit a success!
