My Students

My students are from a small, rural town in South Carolina. Many of them have never been more than 30 miles or so from where they live. We have a high rate of poverty, and our students lack resources for school as well as basic resources for living. Despite this, we have a lot of successes to brag about, both individual students and our whole school community.

I would like for my students to have access to the best education possible.

Our students are hard working and success driven. Many of them understand the importance of education to better themselves. They deserve to be given up to date resources to aid in their education.

My Project

I teach World History to 9th graders. The textbooks we are expected to use are not only outdated but most of them are unusable. Our World History textbooks are 13 years old and literally falling apart. My students deserve better! I would like to purchase a curriculum that would allow me to not have to use the textbook at all. The item I am requesting is a complete World History curriculum with all the necessary resources for me to effectively teach this subject and provide high engagement materials to my students. We would create interactive notebooks and would not have to use the textbooks at all. Please consider helping us!
