Ms. Hayward from West Jordan UT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Teaching Life Skills through Classical Reading

Help me give my students life skills on top of state academic standards by reading classic novels. The book, "One Crazy Summer" will allow me to teach both academic and social skills to each of my students.

My Students

My classroom is the perfect melting pot of students. They range from different nationalities, languages and academic levels. I teach at a Title I school and approximately thirty to fifty percent of my students are English Language Learners at any given time.

Although my classroom is extremely diverse, we have a classroom climate of love and support.

My students do whatever they can to help each other succeed in all aspects of life, from student coursework to social and home skills. They provide a safe environment for each other.

My Project

The students will be reading the classic book, "One Crazy Summer". At my Title I school, many of my students are focused not on school, but on basic needs. They are worried about food, shelter, family, etc. Their education comes after their other needs have been fulfilled. With this book, I will teach my students about life in the 1960s, struggles of other children, and learning how to cope with family issues, as well as racial and ethical dilemmas.

I will reach my students by teaching them social skills and strategies while integrating language arts.

The book has a large emphasis on strong family bonds, perseverance and dealing with adversity in the face of tragedy. Many of my students deal with these things every day, especially in the area they live in. I hope to provide students the ability to succeed in their lives, by giving them opportunities to relate to others that have persevered through trials.
