Civic Action Project: Creating a Multicultural Library

Author: Cynthia Villarreal Cantu, Texas
Grade 3-5

During this lesson, the students will explore and create an Identity Chart.  The students will make connections to the previous books they read, Esperanza Rising and Land of the Cranes, including the experiences, background, and location. Through creating and carrying out a Civic Action Project the students will also research and create a multimodal text set and a list of multicultural books they would like to be included in their new school library. They will learn to use technology to create posters, flyers, video, or brochures to request donations of books. They will also create formal correspondence with publishers and community members requesting donations and promoting their multicultural library.
