My students need the price of admission to the Museum of Tolerance.
My classes are full of 9th and 10th-grade students with varying disabilities including Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, and specific learning disabilities among others. My 9th graders will begin reading Animal Farm and my 10th graders will begin reading Night before our visit to the museum. My students come from different backgrounds, different neighborhoods-- some have never left their hometown.
This group of freshmen and sophomores inspire me every day!
When I took my previous classes to the museum, it was amazing to watch their eyes light up as exhibit after exhibit brought the novels that we were reading come to life. I can't wait to see this 'aha' moment with this next batch of students.
What makes my students special is the fact that despite their disabilities, they are all willing and able participants in their education, and when they understand, their ideas are deep and thoughtful. I have proud teacher moments often!
Animal Farm and Night are both books that reference ideas of intolerance and hate. The Holocaust is specifically detailed in Night, and like concepts alluded to in Animal Farm, the segregation, blame, and different treatments of people and animals is based on appearance/religion/race.
The Museum of Tolerance is an amazing place that helps students to explore ideas of race, tolerance, acceptance, and their own thoughts about these ideas.
By immersing my students in this hands-on, interactive experience, they learn more about tolerance, the Holocaust, and how to make sure that they are aware of the ways that words and language can affect our world. This field trip is special to my students, as some of them have never been on a school-sponsored trip, or ever been to Los Angeles.
The most amazing experience at the Museum of Tolerance is the end. Our students will be able to hear the real experiences of a Holocaust survivor. This special experience is what my previous students have enjoyed the most, and truly puts a face to the experiences that we have read about in our books.
