Ms. H. from New Orleans LA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help My Seniors Find Research Books in Their School Library

Help me give my students social justice books. "Unmuted: Conversations on Prejudice, Oppression, and Social Justice" and other books on this list will help them gain perspectives on issues that matter to them.

My Students

My students are primarily coming from New Orleans East, the Desire area, and the Lower Ninth Ward. My students need a better selection of books that are relevant to their senior capstone projects.

Social justice is a big part of senior year, and the library is lacking in resources they can use.

They need books for research to complete their graduation requirement.

They are a driven, enthusiastic, and a genuinely kind group of high schoolers who are passionate about subjects like police brutality, gun rights, school safety, sentencing reform, etc. They are excited by this challenge on the horizon and are hungry for a rigorous high school experience that will prepare them for it. We want more resources for our library so students can find more books they can use on current issues they are affected by.

My Project

The seniors at G.W. Carver High School are required to complete a capstone project on a social justice issue that is important to them. They are very passionate about social injustices and need more resources for their research.

Learning to use the library for research is a skill they can take on to college and the rest of their life.

Our school library needs a better selection of resources for them to use to complete their final project for high school. These books are a great start to building up this section in the library so they can have strong sources when making arguments for change.
