Mr. Merksamer from Dorchester MA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need subscriptions to TIME For Kids Magazine to develop global citizenship and to meet Social Studies standards. It is our primary resource for connecting the classroom to the world.
Thank you for supporting my students! Our school serves the historic neighborhood of Dorchester (Boston). We are proud to be one of the most diverse school districts in the nation. Nearly one in every two students speaks a language other than English at home and our students come from 135 different countries.
We strive to build up global citizens, educated to serve our world with sharp minds and compassionate hearts.
It is my mission and goal to provide the most rigorous, yet absolutely encouraging environment for all of our young scholars. DonorsChoose.org is an essential tool providing resources otherwise unavailable to us.
It can be difficult at times to make classroom learning relevant to current events, but TIME For Kids Magazine does this quite well. Each week, my students read the scholarly articles which further develop their literacy skills, while at the same time building awareness of global situations.
Social Studies is often the most neglected content area, yet our students need to be exposed to culture and perspectives besides their own.
Community service projects are inspired by and motivated by the feature articles of other young heroes, and my students realize that they have the power to cause lasting change.
The magazines are incredibly valuable to this development of citizenship. Our newest American immigrants will gain the exposure to United States culture and government structure, hopefully motivating all of us to be active agents of positive change!
