My Students

My school is made up of about 225 students in grades PK-12. Currently, 100% of this student population is receiving free or reduced-price lunches. This indicates that our district has a very high level of poverty. The demographic makeup of our school is 39% Native American, 2% Asian, 19% Black, 2% Hispanic, and 39% Caucasian. My students come from diverse backgrounds and more than 90% receive free and/or reduced lunch (low income/high poverty) My students comprise all levels of academic abilities including students with disabilities.

My students and classroom need materials and resources that will help my students understand the background and significance of the Tulsa Race Riot.

Many of my students are not aware of the background and ramifications of the Tulsa Race Riot and as it approaches the 100 anniversary of this event in Oklahoma history.

My Project

My students will learn about the Tulsa Race Riot/Massacre by reading or listening to books about the riot. The books used to provide background and perspectives are,: "Death in the Promise Land", "Dreamland Burning" and "Up from the Ashes". They will collect research materials and compile a portfolio of information on this event in Tulsa history using pocket folders. Students will then create and laminate posters depicting aspects of the Tulsa Race Riot using card stock and laminating sheets.

This project will introduce or enhance my students knowledge of racial violence and discrimination in American history, the Tulsa riot of 1921.

The study of this riot will allow students an intimate look at not only the causes of violence, but also the specific responses of members of the black and white communities.
