Help High School Earn College Credit

My students need 8 Lanahan readers and 2 Woll readers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a social studies teacher at an urban setting in Nevada. Nevada's Governor has cut the state education budget for the last two years, putting Nevada at the bottom in the nation for funding of education. Even though I teach at a college preparatory high school, our graduation rate is only 50%. Of those that graduate, only a small portion go on to college. It is my goal to help make college possible for my students. One of the courses that I teach is Advanced Placement Government. Students in this class are able to take a national exam and earn college credit. Students who pass the exam can earn 3 college credits while still in high school. Because funding for schools and departments have faced drastic funding decreases, there is barely money for basic supplies, much less supplemental materials to explain in greater depth the concepts we cover in class. To ensure the students in my class are fully prepared for the national test, it is important to supplement my curriculum beyond the textbook. To accomplish this goal and provide indepth analysis of political content, I would like 10 copies of current readers (8 Lanahan and 2 Woll) that are available. Many of my students will be the first in their family to go to college. I want to help ensure their success. Please help make my students dreams come true by purchasing the supplemental materials.
