My Students

I teach at a Title I school where some of my students do not have access to computers on a daily basis at their houses. My students come from many different types of backgrounds. Some of them live with both of their parents, their grandparents, or some other relative who has been appointed to raise them. Sometimes it is hard to imagine everything that they face once they go home. My classroom is hopefully a safe haven for many of them where they can forget what they are dealing with and learn more about the history of our world.

I believe I can add to their learning experience by using creative hands-on learning as well as showing them what else is out there in the world.

We have to show them that their past doesn't dictate where they go in life. They have a blank portrait and it is up to them to create their masterpiece.

My job is show them that they can be whatever they dream for themselves and help guide them to complete their goals. In order to do that, I have to give them the tools to be successful.

My Project

These 12 books will join another four sets of books on the Holocaust and WWII. My intention is to use literary circles in my history class to allow differentiation with interest levels and with reading levels.

Each group will be reading at their own level and doing work associated with their book and then doing discussion classes as well to enable them to discuss their books with each other and hopefully at the end of the class, they will be able to do a history project on their book and how it relates to WWII.

This will enable them to teach the others in the other classes what their book is about in hopes they will want to read another book.
