Literacy is the key to learning. When a child is able to read they are able to interact with the world. Almost every part of daily life requires some level of reading. Sadly, within many schools in impoverished neighborhoods students struggle to become literate members of society. This affects their ability to succeed in grade school, inhibits them from continuing on to college, and makes it challenging to get a job in the future. When children are given the opportunity to read, they flourish academically, socially, and emotionally. The iPads requested will open up an enormous online library for my students to tap into and enjoy. There are countless online libraries, reading programs, and virtual classrooms for my students to explore. These libraries provide them with books on any topic that they could imagine. These reading programs and virtual classrooms give them the opportunity to learn at their own pace in an engaging way.
