I teach at a Title I school in the East Village/Alphabet City. Many of students speak both Spanish and English. While reading and writing is the focus in most classrooms, social studies is often left far behind. My students have yet to realize that they live in a city, within a state, that's a part of a country, etc. We desperately need to weave social studies into the reading, writing and math curriculum. This program allows us to. There is a AMAZING new social studies curriculum called "History Alive!" The name describes it perfectly. Lessons and activities are based on three well-established theories: Multiple Intelligences (students learn in different ways, kinesthetically, musically, linguistically, visually, etc.); Cooperative Interaction (group work leads to learning gains and to higher student achievement); and the spiral curriculum (students learn progressively more difficult concepts through a process of step-by-step discovery). With this program my students will see themselves as important to not just their immediate community but to the rest of the world! They will take part in class elections, read maps, learn about their ancestry and see how their lives are similar to people in other cultures. This grant would fund a textbook for each child and an activity notebook for student's responses.
