My Students

My students are ready to dive into a unit of study on World War II, but they need titles to help them explore.

My diverse students represent all of the cultures and class backgrounds of our city.

They represent both the haves and the have-nots, but they all have the desire to learn. My students have a wide range of skills, from special needs and second language learners, to high achieving gifted students.

My Project

We will dive into a variety of literature to explore World War II and examine how this conflict, and in particular the refugee crisis, compares to events today. Students will have the opportunity to choose from several titles and work in small groups reading and discussing these books.

This unit will help students explore this important historical time and build empathy for this time period's survivors.

The unit will culminate in hearing from survivors and taking a look at how students can make a difference today.
