My Students

We call ourselves a middle school (grades 6th/7th/8th), but we're located in a TK-8 school located in a geographically isolated area at the foot of a beautiful mountain. Our small/tiny town, is officially designated as a frontier (the most rural of rural?) with fewer than 2,000 citizens.

The student composition at our Title One school is more then 50% Latinx, with mostly white and Native American students making up the other half.

This diverse group of students are insulated and almost like family (students are with the same group from TK through 12th grade graduation), however, they are deprived of many opportunities and cultural exposure that most American schools take for granted.

My Project

In conjunction with Learning for Justice/Teaching Tolerance, students will read Tiffany Jewell's This Book is Anti-Racist.

They will be challenging themselves to consider privilege, race, etc while working to form/understand their individual identities.

In conjunction with Tiffany Jewell's book, students will read and write poetry, take part in activities that engender empathy (such as a Privilege Walk), and make connections to their own lives as well as to carefully curated literature.

Issues of race, nationality, privilege, gender, and class will enhance students' critical thinking skills while offering serious reflection and self-examination.
