Mr. Hall from Arroyo Grande CA is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Students Learn About the Holocaust at the Museum of Tolerance

Help me give my students the chance to learn about historical injustices and gain the tools, responsibility, and motivation to create a better world for themselves.

My Students

These are 7th and 8th grade AVID students. The AVID program is a college preparatory class aimed at helping our most determined and hard working kids be the first in their families to attend a 4-year university. The vast majority of our students are from families in a low socio-economic bracket and many are first or second generation immigrants. To apply for the AVID program they must have the goal of attending a 4-year university and a willingness to challenge themselves to take and succeed in rigor courses.

My Project

In the words of the Museum of Tolerance: "Visitors become witnesses to history and explore the dynamics of bigotry and discrimination that are still embedded in society today. Through interactive exhibits, special events, and customized programs for youths and adults, the Museum engages visitors’ hearts and minds, while challenging them to assume personal responsibility for positive change. "

It is my goal to teach these kids about how unthinkable atrocities have and continue to happen throughout the world largely due to the complicity or ignorance of the common people.

I hope to instill in them a sense of responsibility to actively work against injustice in their world.
