Grade: 2nd | School: Chinle Unified School District #24 | Location: Chinle, AZ Helen’s wish is to mold her students into awesome readers by providing them with individual book bags filled with books at their reading level.Helen, a Navajo teacher that works in the central part of the Navajo Nation, is concerned about the lack of literature available for students and believes that personalized book bags would make a positive difference for her students.It is my goal to instill in students the ability to be self learners by promoting the spirit of inquiry and teaching effective fact-finding skills.We have an exemplary media center, supplied with books, listening center tapes, videos and DVD’s on many different subjects, magazines, computers with Internet access, databases, and playaways (audio books) as well!
