Supply 500 Books to Courageous Students

by The Max Warburg Courage Curriculum

Summary

Since our founding in 1991, the Courage Curriculum has positively impacted the academic performance of more than 150,000 sixth and ninth grade students in the Boston Public Schools and surrounding public, parochial, charter, pilot and private schools and religious academies. This project puts 500 books into the hands of the courageous children that take part in the curriculum. It will allow for more classrooms to become involved and supply teachers with the tools they need.

Challenge

The Courage Curriculum honors the life of Max Warburg, a courageous eleven-year-old who lost his battle with leukemia in 1991. Max's ability to continue to enjoy life and his steadfast determination and heartfelt hope in the face of a deadly disease were an inspiration to all who knew him. The Curriculum engages teachers in a better understanding of their students and their students' lives.

Solution

Our goal is to develop the essential literacy skills of students; to inspire participants to celebrate acts of moral courage in their own lives and in the lives of others in their community; to train and support teachers in the use of the curriculum to improve their own instruction; and to engage and inspire students to make meaningful connections to literature.

Long-Term Impact

Our project will allow the 500 school children in Boston and beyond the chance to fully take part in our curriculum. It will allow the schools (public, private, parochial and more) to continue to use our curriculum at no cost. It will also allow us to expand the curriculum to schools in areas outside of Boston, encouraging children from all neighborhoods to relate to each other with the theme of courage.
