Ms. Barrett from Huntington IN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Historical Perspectives

My students need most literature about historical topics. These are great books that students can apply prior knowledge to exciting stories. In addition, the cart will hold all the assignments related to the books.

My Students

My students are amazing, passionate, and hard working individuals. The students grow and become more successful with each passing day. I greatly look forward to watch them grow and develop into fantastic young adults.

My students impress me every year with how eager they are to grow and learn.

I teach at a public middle school that has a great sense of pride for their community. I want them to have every opportunity to become positive contributors to their community.

My Project

The books and the cart will greatly help my classroom. Not only will the students be used by over 100 students it will also be used by students of all learning levels. The books will allow the students to apply prior knowledge to stories that have occured throughout history.

The literature will help my students not only in with the Social Studies standards, but also with reading comprehension and literacy standards.

The use of the cart will greatly help with the organization and calm atmosphere in my classroom. By having a place for all assignments this creates a classroom that can focus more on helping students succeed.
