My students need 8 items such as a United States symbols kit, a government photo book, a map skills book, and a social studies project center.
“When Benjamin Franklin was leaving the Constitutional Convention of 1787, a lady asked him, “Well Doctor, what have we got, a monarchy or a republic?” to which Franklin famously replied, “A republic, madam, if you can keep it”. I teach third grade in an impoverished area; however, my students are extremely intelligent, attend class daily, and are eager to learn. According to the authors of “American Educator”, the “primary determinant of where most students end up in society is not found in their innate ability or family background; rather it is found in their knowledge. More importantly, it is knowledge that can be learned at school.” History has always fascinated me and I want to inspire my students to harness a passion and a thirst for learning about this essential subject; and, thus become good citizens. Currently, the focus subjects in my district are math and science. However, at an early age students must be taught the fundamental aspects of our society. Patriotism, civics, commerce, law and politics are just a few of the concepts of which students must have knowledge. My students need items such as a United States symbols kit, a government photo book, a map skills book, and a social studies project center. As a community of Americans, I am hoping that “We the people” can share in the gratification of giving our future generation the materials needed to understand our “republic” and as Benjamin Franklin noted, “can keep it”. We are a privileged nation. We care about family, children and the freedom we have as citizens. I do hope that you would be willing to help students by providing needed materials.
