My Students

As a product of the Chicago Public School district, I know the issues my students face daily. Yet, despite their circumstances, my students want to succeed in life, overcome all obstacles, and make their families proud! My students are strong, vibrant, and full of life, always ready to do the task at hand, but often they wish there was more to class than just pen and paper. My students are respectful and well-mannered. Unfortunately, often times, they have one too many odds stacked against them. It is my goal that a lack of resources is not another issue they face!

My Project

This project requests a class set of The Tempest No Fear Shakespeare books to use in our Virtue and Vengeance unit. Sophomore students will close read, analyze, cite textual evidence and explore the themes of compassion and forgiveness. Our textbook only provides an Early Modern English version of the text that my students find difficult to read and understand.

In an effort to make Shakespeare accessible to all students, this project requests a class set of The Tempest (No Fear Shakespeare edition) that provides students with a side by side translation they need to help them read and understand the text.

Your donation to this project will help to ensure that students have the text version that best suits their learning needs and that has multiple translations.
