Reading Through the Civil War

Help me give my students the opportunity to explore these amazing texts while learning about the Civil War.

My Students

My students come from many different types of homes and families. I teach in a high poverty level area. Many students come to our school without the supplies needed. I have a classroom full of excited, active learners who love to learn new information.

I want to ensure that my students receive the very best education that can be provided to them, no matter where they come from.

I want my students to walk out of my classroom, excited to continue learning and take on the world!

My Project

These amazing texts will allow my students to become engaged in amazing literature, while also learning about one of the most important historical events in our country's history.

These wonderful texts will allow my students to dive deeper into a topic that excites them.

Currently my students will have no access to any additional texts about the Civil War. I want my students to be able to be engaged with texts that grab their attention and interest. These texts will allow my students to learn so much more about the Civil War than I could teach them without these amazing books!
