Every person is diverse and unique in their own way. My students need to understand that they too are diverse and unique. This project will give them a chance to celebrate their diversity and learn about what makes people special in their own way.
I teach troubled 7th graders in the heart of the Bronx.
They are unaware of how their actions and words can hurt a person. They use the "B" and "N" words constantly to hurt and insult anyone who disagrees with them. They also bully other children based on being different. With the books "Letter from Rifka", "We Are All Americans," and "Black Women of the Civil Rights Movement," the students will be able to learn about diversity and acceptance. The tablets would allow the students to research the topic of diversity and Civil Rights as a small group at their desks. They students will then create a project based on the information they researched via books and tablet.
These resources will allow my classroom to have fun while using creative resources so that they can learn about diversity, civil rights, bullying, and cultural differences. One of the resources is a book about diversity in the classroom called "One Size Does Not Fit All". The multicultural books along with the tablets will allow us to work on projects related to cultural diversity. These resources will allow them to have plenty of materials for different stations to teach kids about different cultures, diversity and civil right issues as well as bullying.
Your donations will help students access information.
The more information that students have about a topic, the better they will be able to share and discuss information around that topic. It is my goal to create a space for discussion. The addition of books and tablets will be used as a research tool to support this venture. With students able to explore a variety of websites, they can better link the past to the present and share their new and deepened understandings with other students.Read More
