Hooray! This project is fully funded
Students at my high school are experiencing a unique high school journey! Our school just opened in Fall 2016, and students are working hard to establish a culture and climate that is all-inclusive and focused on success!
Our school is also building its own set of resources.
When the school opened, there were many things shared from the original high school in the district. While some other materials have been purchased, we are still in need of books for our students.
Our high school serves an eclectic mix of students from a variety of different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Students are primarily residents of lower to lower-middle classes. Resources are limited, but their potential is is not!
Freshman students, at Ridgevue High School, focus on an essential question that directs their curriculum: "How do we form and shape our identities?" As such, the assigned literature provides stories of personal growth and discovery. One of the memoirs that students read is Houston and Houston's memoir, Farewell to Manzanar.
Currently, we have only 51 copies of the book and most copies have several pages missing.
Students need copies of the book that are complete and in good condition. This unit teaches students about the experiences of Japanese people who endured Japanese internment camps during World War II. This unit includes strong historical context and meaningful human connections.
