Mr. Leopold from Columbus OH is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning How to Stand Up for Others

My students need 25 copies of the book entitled THE MAD WOLF'S DAUGHTER. This book will be one of the first two novels that my classes read at the beginning of the next school year.

My Students

My students are all gifted in reading. But, this does not always equate into higher achievement. Studies have shown that this happens because gifted readers cannot relate to the novels chosen for them and because they cannot see how the novel affects their lives.

Relevance and Empathy; Two missing pieces of many curriculums for our gifted readers.

My students long for these two things. I have students telling me that most of the books they have to read have nothing to do with their lives outside of school. My students also engage highly when they see how the learning will make them a better person/citizen. I am hoping this project will give them both.

My Project

I spend a lot of teaching time focusing on the theme of looking beyond yourself and learning how to serve others by standing up for their rights. We have a quote where we say "standing up for yourself is good.....standing up for others is great."

We discuss the first amendment and research ways to practice standing up for those who cannot do so for themselves.

The book entitled "The Mad Wolf's Daughter" is an amazing novel about a young girl living during the medieval period. She, first of all, has to learn to accept herself and to have confidence in her talents and abilities. Then, with this new-found power, she must face the daunting challenge of rescuing her family and friends. Along the way, many obstacles try to cause her to give up the fight. But she learns that using your skills to help others is the greatest thing you can do with your life.

This is such an exciting novel that will engage the students and also bring them into serious real-life discussions of what it truly means to be a hero.
