Coach Southerland from Emerson AR is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students copies of Raise your Game as well as Up From Slavery.
I coach junior high and senior high boys basketball and teach history in a rural school in south Arkansas.
The boys on my basketball teams strive to be the best at everything they do and are leaders among their peers.
Every boy on this team genuinely wants to become a better basketball player. More than that, each of them is sincere in his effort in becoming a mature man. They are a spirited, hardworking, passionate group of young men and need to be given ample opportunity to succeed.
The students at my school are competitive academically with much bigger schools in Arkansas. With more resources I suspect our students will be able to succeed even more.
When kids are young many of them dream of becoming a superstar in a sport. While that goal may be attainable for some athletes, the percentage of high school players that become professional athletes is rather small. My goal is to help them become the best players they can, but also, help them become as successful as possible in whichever career they choose to pursue.
These books will help my students gain knowledge necessary to becoming effective communicators, leaders, and teammates in sports and in life.
Not only will the books help my basketball team, they will also help students in the classroom. They will integrate seamlessly with the current curriculum being used in my history classroom. The overall goal is to expose students to books allowing them to have diversity in learning while also improving reading comprehension.
