Loteria and Life Lessons: Connections with Literature and Real Life
My students need the novel Loteria to provide a culturally relevant text through which they can connect and view themselves and their experiences through literature.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I work with a high number of at risk students who have experienced the impacts of Hurricane Harvey. All students have been impacted in some way regardless of socioeconomic status.
This school year has been a tough year to get back on our feet and any little help goes and has gone a long way.
We have learned to appreciate everything that has been donated to our classroom and would be ever grateful for anything that is given to us.
This novel would help us finish our school year in a fun and culturally engaging way.
Students will use this novel to practice reading skills and increase lexile levels, but also to provide an engaging and culturally relevant text in the classroom. Students will read and make real life connections to their journeys and experiences through this colorful 11 year old's testimony.
For our multicultural students it is often a struggle to see how literature ties into our daily lives on a daily basis simply because they do not have access to the multicultural literature in the classroom.
My goal is to highlight the multicultural literature that is out there to help them see that reading literature is the gateway to good writing and language acquisition.
