Ms. Jordan from Tega Cay SC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Give me liberty, AND give me resources to research....please!

Help me give my students many nonfiction history books covering the American Revolutionary War and Civil War periods. My students through the Lucy Caulkins' Units of Study will create a research project based on the history researched.

My Students

My students are ready to read and write. My class is a mixed gender group of 9 and 10 year old students. My room is alive and the learning is occurring as soon as my students enter their classroom,and extends far beyond the limits of the school day.

My hope is to add interesting small group American Revolutionary War research resources and historical fiction book club resources that will enhance their learning experience with the Lucy Calkins reading and writing programs.

The units of study build upon collaboration, communication and building a love for reading.

My Project

It is very difficult for a teacher to accumulate written resources for student research projects. Sure they can use the world wide web, but the students should develop the appreciation of using books and magazines to find details/information for their research project.

My students will have the ability through these much needed resources to find historical information through rich resources.

I have researched these resources and found them valuable for researching the American Revolutionary War and the Civil War. Students should be taught the value of online and offline resources. With your help, we can make this project a fantastic experience!
