The Other Wes Moore
My students need a class set of the book "The Other Wes Moore".
Have you ever wondered if one decision you made in your life could have created a completely different path where you would have ended up in a completely different situation?
Our public high school serves approximately 1,900 students.
These students come from a large military community with a variety of different cultural experiences and backgrounds. Many come from economically disadvantaged homes and will attend several different schools before completing high school. Despite these challenges, our students are actively engaged learners who thrive in a stimulating learning environment.
Because of the background of many of our students, they need a positive role model to look up to. This book will help our media program motivate our students to always become the best representation of their community and family possible. Encouraging students to read this book and discuss in a classroom setting will hopefully help them make better choices in their lives.
By donating to this project, the media program will be able to offer this resource to the students in our school.
The media specialists will collaborate with a variety of teachers using this book in order to reach as many at risk teens as possible. Seeing a real-life example of the power of choice will be very eye-opening.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
