Mr. Nutter and Ms. Peterson, 7th grade social studies teachers, would like to purchase classroom sets of the book Day of Tears by Julius Lester. This novel will take students into the minds of slaves and masters as they follow a young girl's journey from slavery to a life of freedom.

The themes presented in this story will also allow students to engage in extension activities that include research projects, readers' theater, role-playing, and various writing exercises.

If you'd like to help purchase these books, donations can be made on Donors Choose.

Questions? Contact Mr. Nutter at joshua.nutter@mpls.k12.mn.us.
