Ms. Fletcher-Fierro from West Covina CA is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

HE NAMED ME MALALA Class Trip

My students need tickets to see the film, "He Named Me Malala" in order to appreciate and value their education. They also need transportation to and from theater.

My Students

My students are seventh graders, making the transition from elementary. They are excited, nervous, overwhelmed, and impressionable. As their teacher, my job is to not only teach them to read, think, and write critically in English class, but also to challenge them to be better people and citizens.

I teach in a low-income area in Southern California.

My students face many challenges, but generally come to school ready and willing to learn. Many of them are English language learners, so at times they struggle in school, but their perseverance is inspiring.

My Project

I am requesting tickets and transportation to see the film, "He Named Me Malala" on October 9th. I believe this film will inspire, motivate, and empower my students both as learners and as advocates for others. Through Malala's story, I hope they will see the value of education and how fortunate they are to have access to schooling.

Once students see the film, we will discuss it as a community, and my hope is for two main outcomes.

One, that some of my reluctant/unmotivated students will be moved by her story and will take more ownership of their learning. Two, that students will gain a broader perspective of the world and be advocates for change in whatever ways they can.
