End of Year Gift for Socratic Scholars

The Description

With these funds I will purchase a copy of March: Book One by John Lewis to give to each of my students in 3rd through 8th grade at the five Achievement Schools.

This year, the highest achieving students in 3rd to 8th Grade at each school became the Socratic Scholars. They have participated in a year-long social justice oriented class and are currently completing community empowerment projects.

They have received no formal grades or credit for their hard work this year and I want to appreciate them at their end of year awards ceremony with a certificate and a book.

March: Book One is a vivid, first-hand account of John Lewis' lifelong struggle for civil and human rights (including his key roles in the historic 1963 March on Washington and the 1965 Selma-Montgomery March), meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. 

In March, a true American icon teams up with one of America's most acclaimed graphic novelists. Together, they bring to life one of our nation's most historic moments, a period both shameful and inspiring, and a movement whose echoes will be heard for generations.  

Back Up Plan

If I do not meet my goal I will purchase as many books as possible and give them to the Socratic Scholars!
