Ms. Angeles from San Diego CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need 25 copies of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. We will use this book to discuss social and medical inequalities in our Humanities class.
Here at our arts high school, teachers get to organize their curriculum based on equity, authentic work, and collaborative design.
Our students are creative, intelligent, and come from all walks of life.
Most of the work that can be found in our Humanities class is student-led. They crave work that provokes critical thinking and relates to the world outside of our classrooms. True learning takes place in our school because they are encouraged to pursue ideas they’re passionate about.
One of our collaboration projects between Humanities and Biology will be investigating disease and its stigmas. In order to be immersed in this project, we have chosen to read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot to help us dive into social epidemiology, bioethics, and access to healthcare. We are looking for support in meeting our goal of having a class set (25) of books so everyone can access the curriculum.
These books will be the foundation of our collaboration project with their Humanities and Biology classes.
Students will use these books as an aide to writing research papers about diseases and health care. More importantly, these books will provide access to enhance their critical thinking skills and build and sustain our classroom library.
We skillfully push boundaries in the classroom to provide a "real world" setting while making sure students are not disadvantaged when accessing the curriculum. The best way to do this is with books in our hands!
