Mrs. Franklin from Raymond MS is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need books to compare fiction and nonfiction to the reality of the social injustice that is happening in today's society.
My students live in a high poverty rural area and it takes them at least 45 minutes to get to school every day because the buses are limited. Many of the students are being raised by family members such as a grandmother, aunt, cousin, etc. My students really look forward to being away from home because it gives them a chance to escape some of the hardships that they have to face. The students have very high hopes of obtaining quality education in order to be successful outside of the poverty level.
This high school is one of the more culturally diverse schools in the district.
We have a mixture of different races and religions and students love to organize events themselves. Our school has minimum activities or extra-curricular activities, so the teachers provide a lot of the EXTRA for the students.
These materials will help me teach my students about the social injustices that have happened in the past as well as the social injustices that are still happening today.Students will read The New Jim Crow and compare it to the documentary, 13th, which explains the mass incarceration of African American males. Students will use The Hate U Give and Night to research how the events in both text are still relevant in today's society. The mass killing of Jews can be researched and incorporated with nonfiction texts in the class. Many of the students are unaware of the issues that are happening around them- locally or nationally. It is imperative that students research, read, learn, and digest information about social injustice, racism, and police brutality within the world in which they live.
Social media has corrupted our students, but reality has to be explained and shown to them in order to destroy the misconceptions that they have about the world events.
Students will read The Jungle and analyze the text and compare how immigrants are being treated in today's world. Teaching students tolerance is vital to their existence before they leave high school, and I would like to make a difference for the students I teach.
