Civil Rights Graphic Novels for Middle Years Students

The Description

     With these funds I will be able to purchase a class set (33 copies) of the critically acclaimed graphic novel March, Book I. Georgia Congressman and legendary Civil Rights warrior, John Lewis, collaborated on this graphic novel with Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell to tell the story of his own  life and struggle through the Civil Rights Movement. A graphic novel is particularly useful for many of my students as an additional resource that supplements the articles that we read. I work in a high poverty school and  teach students with reading levels that range from 3rd to 10th grade, deaf and hard-of hearing students, students with special learning needs, and English Language learners: graphic novels enable all my diverse students to enjoy grade-level themes and ideas. As young people growing up in a diverse yet stress-filled world, it is crucial that all our students learn about the history of struggle and freedom in our country. Reading and understanding past events empowers them to take the reigns in forming their own future.

I will purchase 33 copies of the Graphic novel March, Book I for about $10.00 a piece

Back Up Plan

If I do not meet my goal I will purchase enough copies of the book to use for small group reading with my students.
