My Students

Supplemental material to study of Japanese Internment for 8th graders.

This year, we have approximately 45 8th graders of all levels of reading abilities.

Specifically, we have readers with no English and others that are reading at a college level. They will be participating in a unit that all 8th graders study at Lost River.

This group of 8th graders is unique in that their ability levels are more spread out than a class has ever been. Including a variety of resources will allow a greater number of students to access the material before the field trip. They will love it!

My Project

These graphic novels will supplement the 8th grade unit studying the Japanese Internment of the 1940s. Each year, the English Dept. has the 8th grade class read Return to Manzanar. Although a great novel we will continue to use, Manzanaris far away and doesn't have the immediate interest of something closer to home. The inclusion of a novel written by someone interned in Tule Lake will greatly improved student participation. Additionally, differentiating our materials with a graphic novel will be of high interest to our best readers and increase engagement in our 8th graders who struggle with reading a bit more.
