Ms. Boland from Bridgeport CT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help with AP US History

My students need 25 copies of the AP United States History Test Prep book, 10 sets of AP United States History Flash Cards, and one copy of "Out of Many: A History of the American People" to pass their AP US History exam in May!

I teach at an urban high school where many of the students have learning difficulties and face extreme challenges from gang pressure to little support systems at home to peer pressure and teenage pregnancy. I try to make them feel connected to the school and to know they can achieve and they can go on to four year colleges.

My students' major obstacle in education is their lack of resources. Our school is facing a major budget crisis, as most districts are, but my school started with so little in the beginning! Our textbooks are outdated and there is simply no money to purchase new ones. In the face of this extreme negative condition, there lies my motivated students who want to pass the AP US History exam and who strive hard daily to get there! Now I just need the resources to help them!

Providing the students with their own AP US History review book will allow my students to practice and study at home for their exam. I will be able to teach my students the skills in the classroom while they master the content at home. The Out of Many Teacher's Edition textbook contains numerous resources like primary source documents, PowerPoint presentations, charts, graphs, and so on that will help me teach my students for the AP exam. There are no new resources in my building to help me prepare my students. Your donation will benefit all of them!

Your help will ensure that my students can get all the resources and tools they need to go to four year colleges. Your help will make it possible for my students to prepare for the AP exam in May, and compete with students from other districts in our area. Your help will empower my students to help and motivate other students from their school and neighborhood to do the same. Your help will create a chain reaction in the city in which students will choose college instead of dropping out of high school! You will make a difference in the lives of many!
