Goal

To provide 5th grade girls with relevant literature that will engage them while opening discussion about real life issues and situations. 

 

What will be done with my students

The book club will be implemented over a 6 month period in which the 5th grade girls dig deep into the social issues presented in each of the 4 books we will read: The Skin I'm In by Sharon Flake, Esperanza Rising by Pam Ryan, The Color of My Words by Lynn Joseph, One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams Garcia. The girls will read each book together in a group, facilitated by me. After each book, the girls will complete a multimedia project to share what they got from it. 

 

Benefits to my students

The outcome will be a better understanding of social issues in today's society as well as a peeked interesting in reading. Providing these four books to the girls will open the floor to conversations about relevant social issues that they are likely to face as they move forward in life. 

 

Describe the Students

The girls are at different learning levels. I have a few low performing girls that are below a 5th grade reading level. All of the girls attend a Transformation Zone school. 

 

Budget Narrative

Each book was calculated for 16 people (15 girls and 1 teacher).
