Hooray! This project is fully funded

Writing is a life skill that students learn in order to survive in the modern world. In my classroom, we write for many different reasons. One type of essay we write is the personal narrative essay. It is the essay that helps students explore different avenues of their lives and put it on paper. Memories, silly moments, sad events, confessions, and more arise out of this essay. We ultimately create a bond with each other. For some students, writing is a form of expression; a place where they can share everything they have brewing in their minds and hearts. I recently went to a writing institute called The New Jersey Writing Project in Texas. In attending this institute, I learned kinesthetic and creative ways to teach writing. It is a masterful approach to teach writing in a way that captures and retains student interest. These activities foster higher order thinking skills, oral literacy, and writing skills that are necessary skills demanded of any individual in the workforce. In order to implement the various activities in my classroom, I will need basic school supplies. The supplies would be used year round for approximately 120 tenth grade students. We live in a rural area with a drop out rate that exceeds fifty percent. Most families are low income families depending on federal assistance programs for survival. It is difficult to get students to bring in basic supplies when the household income does not suffice. It is a costly effort to purchase supplies for that many students. With your donation this endeavor can become a reality.

Grades 9-12
Nearly all students from low‑income households
