My Students

"Do we know how to remember the victims, their solitude... we are their trace" Eli Weisel My students are curious about how world events effect us today. We want to explore the ways that conflict brings people together through the lens of the Holocaust.

Our students are thinkers, are inquirers, they take risks and they create.

Our students come from low socioeconomic status and diverse backgrounds. Our school is one of the oldest buildings in the district and our staff is full of ideas. We are complimented constantly on the positive and convivial atmosphere we have here. We emphasize language and the arts with all students participating in a second language course as well as band, orchestra, choir, or visual arts. We focus on including world applications across all classes and develop units that transcend the classroom.

My Project

We read the graphic novel Maus by Art Speigelman. We will watch Life is Beautiful and discuss the causes and effects of conflict on people during the Holocaust. We explore the poetry of children from Terezin and the Declaration of Universal Human Rights and reflect on our own community. As part of our unit, we want to create a memory quilt that we can display at our school, sharing the legacy of those that made a difference. Part ABCs of the Holocaust and part self exploration, we want to combine poetry, visual arts, and self reflection into a holistic unit about how people come together and how we remember them. We would like to use the fabric, fabric markers, and printable fabric to create a lasting embodiment of our learning - a quilt. If you think about what a quilt can symbolize - home, comfort, safety - it makes the perfect symbol.

Your donation will improve my classroom by providing materials outside of the normal paper, pen, marker, card stock.

Students will engage in a real, authentic learning experience where they can design a quilt square that is personal to them and their learning. It gives them ownership of the process and the content. Students will gain empathy into the lives of others - those displaced by conflict, whatever the cause - as they gain an understanding of the Holocaust.
