Ms. Beard from Valparaiso FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The American Revolution Through the Eyes of a Teen

My students need copies of the novel Johnny Tremain in order to expand their knowledge of the Revolutionary War in order to help them relate to their study of civics.

My Students

My school is a K-8 school, considered high poverty by the state, with roughly 780 students, who have a parent serving in the military or who are largely special needs.

In our district we have the second highest population of special needs children, ESE children, and children who have one or both parents in the military.

Our Title I school has minimal resources. Every teacher at our school works to provide our students with a first-class education while helping them to overcome the many obstacles in their lives.

Due to one or both parents serving in the military and often deploying, our students experience a transient life of adjusting to new environments, expectations, and education standards due to life in the military.

My Project

All seventh graders in the state of Florida have to have a year of civics instruction. Since they don't study American history until 8th grade, it is difficult for some of them to relate to the events taking place during the time the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were being written.

Reading the novel Johnny Tremain is one way that my 7th grade Language Arts curriculum can help civics students relate to this important time in our history.

This is an excellent way to have cross-curricular education and to expand their knowledge of the time period as well as to help them with sustained reading.
