The students here often try to find information about the amazing state of Oregon. But for a school of about 360 students, our Oregon History section is very limited. There would only be enough books for one class to check out and nobody else. We would love to broaden and deepen our historical content of Oregon to include more diversity and knowledge.
We love learning about our own Oregon history.
Students want to check out books about how Oregon came to be, and all of the rich history we have, but with such a limited supply, only one class can do research on this topic at a time. We feel it is vitally important that students have the resources and opportunities to learn about their own state. This will help them become life-long learners and global citizens.
My school has an amazing staff and support system. The students, teachers, and families at my school are all connected to the importance of learning as each student grows.
Books like The Oregon Trail (True Books), A Young People's History of the US, and Native American History for Kids will provide complete non fiction reading practice to help improve their reading skill. Students will be excitedly pouring over these books to help them learn new, valuable information about Oregon's history.
These books will give our students a stronger sense of how Oregon came to be as a state, and the people that made our history unique.
Putting the historical pieces together builds a better global citizen. What an opportunity! Help history come alive for us through Non Fiction literature!
