1. Strength In Peace: A Song for Darfur.

This project started with a historical fiction novel about the Holocaust, Number The Stars by Lois Lowry. The students went on the journey with the protagonist, Annemarie, a ten year old who was living in Denmark in 1943. At this time in history, German forces occupied Denmark. Annemarie is best friends with Ellen, who is Jewish. At the start of the novel, Annemarie believes she is not courageous and is glad that she is an ordinary person who will never be called upon to be brave. Annemarie becomes the heroine in the story and learns that being afraid does not denote a lack of bravery. Doing the right thing, even when one is afraid, constitutes courage. Next, the class had discussions about friendships, ethics, courage, and bravery. Students were asked to define and identify the inhumane behavior in the novel and in the world today. We then turned our focus toward present day Darfur. Keeping in mind our readings and discussions, the students were asked the following questions: What is our responsibility to humanity? Can the power of words change history? This prompted the students to reflect on the actions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. We also studied the powerful words and actions of Dr. Maya Angelou and other courageous individuals. Our hope was that through the process of answering these questions, both in class discussion and in the poetry they wrote, the students would deepen their belief in their own ability to take a stand. This project gave the students a way to feel more connected and aware, not only of struggles in their own community but also of struggles in the lives of people outside of the United States. The poetry in this book is a culmination of a journey, beginning with Annemarie and ending in present day Darfur. While writing the poetry, the 5th graders momentarily became the voices of those who are not being heard. Some of the students words are that of hope, courage, and bravery. Other students lend their voices to the reality of war and life in a refugee camp. They want to let the people of Darfur know that they are not forgotten and that they hear them.
