Mrs. Clark from Reidsville NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Holocaust Literature

My students need multiple copies of literature concerning the Holocaust, such as: "The Pianist," "Tamar" and "The Book Thief." These books will reach a variety of reading levels and interests.

My Students

Examples of dehumanization and intolerance must be taught so that the Holocaust will never be repeated and victimization and injustice will cease. My students are very interested in stories from the Holocaust and I wish to fulfill their desires.

Even though we live in a very rural county, the students at the school where I teach are very diverse, financial and educational.

It is entertaining to watch the mingling of camouflage and Dior during class changes. There are approximately 1500 teenagers in the school who are learning, discovering, and growing throughout the 180 days of school. The students are on a block schedule; each class is 90 minutes. Each of the core classes have between 28 and 35 students. It is a comforting statistic that most of our students have gone to school together since kindergarten and remain friends.

My Project

Because my students are diverse readers and learners, I want to offer a variety of novels at different reading levels. Since students will be able to choose their Holocaust literature, I feel they will be more likely to completely read and understand the text. Students who choose the same novel will have topic discussions as they read. These discussions will bring a higher level of understanding to their reading and the Holocaust. Each student will write an essay and do a presentation after completing the reading, reflecting on a character or topic and its relation to the Holocaust. With a variety of novels and themes being presented, class discussion should prove to be exhilarating. All students will learn, not only from their own reading, but also from other readers. This, I hope, will encourage continued reading.

With the donations my students will be able to select a novel on the Holocaust at their reading level.

Each student will be engaged in the reading giving opportunity for group discussion. Encouraging teenagers to read is difficult; but with the right resources, students are more apt to engage. If they enjoy a novel and finish reading it, they are more inclined to read another.
