e-Connections Post Sacramento New Technology

Ninth grade English teacher Christine Baker at Sacramento New Technology High School has posted with DonorsChoose in hopes of receiving 120 copies of Ishmael Beah’s memoir “A Long Way Gone,” in which he details his experiences as a child soldier in Sierra Leone.

“We find that students are able to write, discuss and think about current global issues — becoming more active and engaged global citizens — when they have read novels and personal accounts that open up discussion in ways that textbooks cannot,” Baker wrote on her donation page.”This is why ‘A Long Way Gone’ would be a fantastic addition to our classroom library and reading list.”
