I am a first-grade teacher at P.S. 3 in Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn. The school is a Title I school. With the new curriculum being implemented in the New York City schools, subjects are ceasing to be taught from textbooks and are taught through inquiry-based, hands-on methods instead. The eighteen first-graders in my class study science by performing experiments and observing results. They learn social studies by recreating social themes in the classroom and debating topics. A major part of their learning still relies on the children's exploration of the subjects in various forms of text--high-quality children's books and child-suited newspapers like "Scholastic News." However, the school does not provide these important resources. I want to give my students the opportunity to learn about space by reading a grade-level book on the solar system, or read about the presidential candidates in a paper and have a mock election. The grant I am asking for would cover the cost of several science-topic nonfiction and thematic fiction titles, as well as a class subscription to "Scholastic News."
