Help Kids Get Books!

Help me give my students the opportunity to have books to hold in hand. These books will help teach about rough topics such as the Holocaust and genocide during World War II.

My Students

Being a small, rural school, we have a wide variety of students that walk through our doors. We have kids who are running the family farm, to kids living in some of the lowest income areas outside of Eugene. Regardless of where they come from, one thing you will hear our whole staff say is we have a lot of good kids. Everyone has their struggles, but our students feel connected with each other and our staff in ways that don't happen in bigger schools. They stick up for each other and have a strong level of respect. We love our students and want them to have limitless experiences.

My Project

Often students can be reluctant readers. It is a true test of any teacher to have students fully engaged in literature. Our amazing staff has a desire to be capable of giving our students an opportunity to have new books that we wouldn't be able to purchase normally. The book is called Maus, and it takes on the task of presenting tough topics such as the Holocaust and genocide through graphic novel format. This book is extremely well written and will engage our reluctant readers like never before. Through this format, students will be exposed to tough topics, and expand their reading abilities. This is truly an amazing opportunity to help our students to be exposed to literature that not only catches but also keeps their attention. I love that our teachers are willing to take a risk on this and provide the best education possible!
