Mrs. Busey from Highlands Ranch CO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Military History Library

My students need 43 new books to add to our collection of military history books. These books will help them become more engaged in learning about history, and will allow them to produce better research papers.

Military history is one of the areas that helps us motivate reluctant male readers. Getting boys to love books is a continual struggle, but great non-fiction about high interest topics is one of our strongest allies.

We have a small but well loved collection of military history which is used by our male students in writing their I-searches. They want much more, and with your help we can satisfy their curiosity.

This collection of military history books will engage our students to understand how wars have been waged since ancient civilizations, through medieval times, to our current conflicts.

With your help, we can captivate our most reluctant readers with these books that provide both engaging text and outstanding graphics, maps, and photos.
