Hooray! This project is fully funded

Teaching in 2006 requires using every trick in the book and then some to help students absorb and understand any area of content study. Many of today's students are visual learners. Pages of words with few images do not encourage students to read required materials. I have found that children's picture books many times offer a great deal of the required information and beautiful graphics to capture the eye of the visual learner. My proposal requests additional books for my classroom library of children's picture books. The material covered meets the content standard for my subject area US history. For reluctant readers, English language learners, and even the grade level reader, picture books offer one more way to support our studies in US history. My choice of books includes the American Revolution, the US Constitution, Westward Expansion, and the contributions of many of Americans who are often overlooked.
