I teach Fifth Grade to about 30 kids in this South Bronx (Charlotte Garden\'s) Community School. The school receives Title 1 funding, and 92% of the students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. Among many subjects, I teach \"Social Studies.\" The textbooks are old, and are best used when Names, Dates and Time-lines are being studied. I believe that History can be taught more effectively when it is integrated with great literature. Great stories engage us, and they give us a context to understand the the time and place that the story happens in. I would like to propose the purchase of 30 copies of the novel \"Of Mice and Men\" by John Steinbeck. This will allow me to achieve the following goals: 1. to help students to have a context for understanding the Great Depression; 2. To stimulate thinking and analysis about the racial issues that are brought up in the book; 3. To allow for a whole-class reading of a great work of literature; 4. To introduce students to a novel that is also available as a Movie. I will assess my students\' understanding of the book by having them think about, discuss, and write from the perspective of any one of the characters.
