My Students

The students at JHS are an amazing group of kids. They are situated in the Keweenaw Peninsula on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. They are a group that generally enjoys the outdoors, working with their hands, and actively discussing ideas.

Activities that allow for hands-on work and full class participation are ideal for these students.

The more often that they can get to work in groups on projects, the better. However, they sometimes need some encouragement to share their thoughts, so any way to get kids exciting to be involved is beneficial in classes.

They are a group that in general has a lower income than many other schools, and some families struggle to make ends meet. But, our kids are a resilient bunch that is often the first to volunteer to help others in their classes and their communities.

My Project

Students in my classroom need the opportunity to learn about historical topics in different genres. These graphic novels would help my students better understand World War II through a new medium. Graphic novels are highly engaging and easily accessible for most students, and it is my belief that these books would greatly help my students gain a deeper understanding of World War II. The two books together cover both main theaters of action: The Pacific and Europe. Therefore, students will get a good general overview of World War II but will do so in a way that will give them visuals to match their reading.
