Mrs. Royer from Rayne LA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

I Am Enough!

My students need these novels to complete a unit of study based on our new curriculum, Wit and Wisdom. I'm asking for a class set to share among my seventy students.

My Students

Hi! My name is Erin Royer. I'm a 7th grade English/Language Arts teacher. My kiddos are an AMAZING group of students who are constantly striving to better themselves. These students are always excited to learn and putting their best foot forward.

I am enough!

This is what I am constantly telling my kiddos. We are teaching a new curriculum this year which is all about self-identity and accepting who you are, which is a hard thing for middle school students.

My Project

According to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, "The history of the past is but one long struggle upward to equality." The novel studies in seventh grade are all centered around self-identity and worth.

Using these two rich, historical novels, students will be able to identify how people were able to overcome adversity and how they formed an identity during a time of war on both a personal and national scale.

As middle-school students, I find they are trying to find who they are or want to be. Being able to use history to teach this concept is exciting to me! I can only imagine the connections they'll make to their own life using these resources. The possibilities are endless!
