My Students

Our school is in a rural community where the students often come from struggling backgrounds, with around half receiving reduced or free lunches and textbooks.

Our students are eager to learn.

They have 1:1 Chromebooks. but are also pushed to continue reading books and writing by hand as they use technology to develop 21st-century skills.

Our students are creative, contemplative, motivated, and curious. They have a variety of interests and needs to be successful in the classroom and beyond.

My Project

My advanced students want to be challenged in their reading selections. There are so many great Holocaust books out there and I have been looking for an interesting one to share with my advanced readers. This memoir is such a moving account of a child's experience in the Holocaust as the youngest member of Oskar Schindler's list. I believe this book will challenge them as well as inspire them to read other accounts of the Holocaust housed in our school library. This unit typically takes place before our annual trip to Washington, D.C. where we also visit the Holocaust museum.
