I will be welcoming a wonderful group of approximately 21 students who show kindness in a variety of ways. Many of the students come from low-income families (80% of our school is on free and reduced lunch), and trauma is a big part of many students' lives. While some students love the weekend, we have some students that feel the safest while at school.
As a classroom, we strive to put ourselves out there by taking risks, making mistakes, and supporting each other every day.
We know that the brightest minds make mistakes every day and that is how they learn. As young learners, we need to read about important people and events through history to see the mistakes and successes that have occurred.
These books will provide exceptional narrative nonfiction reading material to my students. Many of the books are about influential African Americans, and many more are about women. These books delve into the history of sciences and America.
With these books, I am attempting to create an inclusive classroom library that can inspire all students.
Studies show that when students can see themselves in the lives of others, they become more engaged. By seeing Americans of all walks of life, they will begin to see how all have contributed to American history.
Students will not only be able to access these books at all times, but they will be used to teach different points and viewpoints in history throughout the school day.
