Students at my school are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative. As English language learners, books are so important to my students and are truly valued. I am the fourth grade teacher in a city without one bookstore, the school and classroom libraries are essential resources for my students.
Our social studies unit on Movement, Adaptation, and Resilience addresses the coexistence of sovereign nations through the lense of Native Americans.
Adding teacher mentor texts to classroom library will provide students with stories to help them embrace the differences in others.
The teacher mentor texts will help support our social studies unit on Movement, Adaptation, and Resilience. These books will help specifically address what happens when people encounter new cultures due to movement. This unit will take this thinking one step further by using the case student of people moving into the homelands of Native Americans.
An important concept throughout the lesson will be the idea of seeing events from multiple perspectives with specific emphasis on honoring and accurately representing Native American perspective.
The goal of this unit is to develop a deep understanding that can transfer to new situations in the past, present, and future.
