Hooray! This project is fully funded
One of the challenges I have found while teaching Social Studies to middle-schoolers at I.S. 61 in Corona, Queens is making history "real" for my students. One effective way I have found to do so is by assigning my students historical fiction novels. We use both print and audiobook formats.
Books on CD make reading fun. My students love to listen and read along with the narrator. In fact, I often have students who ask if they can come to listen to the book during their lunch period or after school.
In the spring, we will be studying the events leading up to the Civil War. To supplement the curriculum, I would like my students to read Nightjohn by Gary Paulsen. Set on a southern plantation in the 1850s, this book vividly describes the harsh realities of slavery. This novel will add a unique perspective that can not be found in any textbook.
I would like to request a class set of Nightjohn by Gary Paulsen and a copy of the audiobook.
Thank you for your generosity.
