Fifth grade literacy teachers at Nashville Elementary recently received a $1,885 grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council for a study entitled “The Dust Bowl and the Great Depression.” Literacy Coach Vickie Beene (second from left) wrote the grant application with teachers Karen Tollett, Kristy Vines and Morgan Howard. Students will read the novel Out of the Dust and will have access to a number of texts about this period in American history, Beene said. The grant funds will be used to purchase DVDs, posters and pictures which depict the era, along with CDs of music from the period and a collection of non-fiction books. “We look forward to implementing this project so that our Nashville Elementary School fifth graders will have a deep understanding of this crucial time period in American history,” Beene said.
