My Students

My students are a diverse group of young people with a thirst for knowledge.

Our school is a neighborhood school in a large city.

Our students see homelessness, poverty, and disparity every day on their walks to school. As an arts-focused school, our students often call upon their experiences in the community for inspiration. We encourage our students to make, build, and communicate in a way that is progressive, positive, and peaceful.

My Project

My students will be studying this book as a part of our literature studies unit on perspective. Because this book is so engaging and filled with rich characters, students can't help but empathizing with the perspectives presented. The unique illustration of Columbus' arrival in North America will give students plenty to discuss! We will be reading this book as a class, creating notebook entries based on the book, creating dramatization of the scenes in this book, and creating multimedia projects based on this book's content.

This will make a huge difference to my class as it will further bolster the students' exposure to multiple perspectives in a way that is both engaging and authentic.

The sterilized perspective of the history text cannot capture the humanity of the Taino people in the same way.
