Mrs. Chatalian from Washington DC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a class set of the book "Bronx Masquerade" by Nikki Grimes so we can read, experience, and learn from this book together!
My students are mostly black and Hispanic students in the heart of Washington, DC. They are all very talented, motivated and dedicated college-bound students who persevere even when the going gets tough. They are resilient and brilliant human beings with very bright futures, but they could use a little help realizing their potential and being afforded the opportunities granted to other, more affluent students.
Our students attend a Title I school where most receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch.
Many come from families that are struggling financially and cannot afford the extras that students may need to be successful in school. In fact, many cannot even afford to buy their own notebooks for class. Despite many home and financial challenges, my students are dedicated scholars who are focused on heading to college and making a good life for themselves.
We about to enter into our second unit of study focusing on both poetry and prose. "Bronx Masquerade" by Nikki Grimes will serve as our anchor text. Unfortunately, due to a huge influx in the number of students in our school coupled with loss due to wear and tear over the last 10 years, we currently do not have enough books for every student.
We generally read most of the "Bronx Masquerade" together in class, so it is important that we have enough copies of the book for all of the students.
This project will help ensure that all students can actively engage in the learning experiences we will have as we enjoy this book together.
