My Students

My students are a large group of curious readers from Brooklyn, NY. These eighth grade students love to debate and make connections between what they read and what they learn in other subjects. In addition, they are also always making connections to the real world. Many of my students do not have the resources or the support at home to purchase their own copies of books, so I am constantly searching for ways to put books in their hands, even if it means buying them the books myself.

My Project

These resources will help my students to better understand the pivotal events and impact of the Holocaust. While this is certainly a challenging topic, it is my belief that students need a deeper understanding of this historic time through reading historical and first-hand accounts. This resource will be an invaluable tool which will help these young readers understand and empathize with what other people have gone through. I will be connecting these readings with our classroom work on Night by Elie Wiesel--perhaps one of the most important books ever written. It is my hope that this will be a memorable and meaningful unit of study.
