Help me give my students knowledge about the Holocaust in a way that all reading levels can understand and be engaged.
Our students may be geographically isolated in our small, rural town, but they inquisitively search out information about the world around them. In our 7th grade classrooms, our students ask questions, make connections to their own lives, and push themselves to take charge of their own education. They excitedly learn about current events and historical ones, through various texts, and apply their knowledge to events they see around their own town.
Our students work hard to grow their reading skills and knowledge and bring to our classroom insights from very different backgrounds.
Our school represents tribal, migrant, impoverished, and immigrant families, as well as, a range of different reading levels (1st grade to 9th grade). Despite our differences, we find, through our class discussions and collaborations, that we are able to see things in new ways, apply them to our own stories, and discover that we have more in common than we previously thought.
The New York Times recently published a terrifying statistic: 2/3 of Millennials don't know about the Holocaust. With your help in purchasing a class set of "The Complete Maus," our 7th-grade students won't be a part of that statistic. I'm looking at creating literature circles, allowing my students to choose a book about the Holocaust to read and analyze. Our problem with this project is that the novels we already have available are at 7th grade or higher reading levels. Over a third of my students read between a 1st to 4th-grade reading level. We want to provide them with a reading option that will interest them, improve their reading levels, and allow them to gain an understanding of the Holocaust.
In today's current atmosphere, this is a tragic piece of history that should not be forgotten, lest we allow ourselves to let another event like this to happen.
Please help our classrooms learn about the Holocaust, analyze how something like this happened, and then learn how to be engaged in politics to prevent things like this from happening again.
