Help me give my students copies of the book, I Survived the American Revolution.
My writing class often resembles a history class, as much of what I have the students writing about is coming from current events. In order to compose meaningful essays about these topics, my students require the background content knowledge to first understand the history that preceded these events.
My students soak up every bit of history I present to them!
They use the information to write superb essays, stories, and poems. Even more exciting, they actively seek out more information on their own.
Many of my students are living in a low-income neighborhood that has had a history of crime and violence. Some of them know little about the world outside of their own little neighborhood.
Yet these students are intelligent. They have proven over the past three years to be as capable, if not more so, than their counterparts in the district's higher-income schools. They are excited for the future despite their current lot in life. They are finally beginning to believe that their ability to succeed as learners is, in no way, controlled by their environment. Helping them to focus on their work will keep them on the path to success.
Many of the writing experiences my students will encounter this year will revolve around historical information and current events. My students need the background information to help them write meaningful essays.
The I Survived the American Revolution novel will provide my students with an interesting account of our nation's beginning.
These books are written at a reading ability that can be understood by readers of all ability levels present in my current classes. I have used other books from this series with much success. My students will be able to not only learn about history but about writing realistic fiction as well.
