Multicultural Character Education Library

Help me give my students a Multicultural Character Education Library where they can learn more about character development through rich text.

My Students

Our energetic, all-boy, black and hispanic population of under-privileged students have a need of exceptional character development. Our students have such a huge heart for learning despite their circumstances. They come from disadvantaged situations and we provide a safe and loving place for them to learn.

Through DonorsChoose.org, I hope to provide the proper mentor texts to guide them through their character development.

This set of texts will impact the entire school in our endeavor to teach core values to impact them the rest of their lives.

My Project

Our boys need a Multicultural Character Education Library to enhance our character education program. We are in the process of creating an amazing character development curriculum at our school. However we need rich, engaging mentor text to grab the attention of our students.

These books will help us to create a Multicultural Character Education Library that will guide the instruction of our teachers and engage the students.

The books that I have chosen represent mostly black and hispanic boys as this is the greater population of our school. Our boys need to see themselves in the characters of the books we read in school and will help them better connect with the stories.
