The Chromebooks requested will be used in two ways: As my students come from incredibly diverse education systems (or, at times, none at all) from all around the world, they enter into my classroom with a hugely diverse range of linguistic, mathematical, and socioemotional strengths as well as challenges. As a result, I often work with students in small groups in order to give them the support they need and the growth they deserve, creating three or four objectives each day for different groups of students. First, the Chromebooks will be used daily in my classroom to support differentiation, especially for students at the extreme ends of the spectrum. With the addition of a set of laptops that can stay in my classroom each day, I will be able to more efficiently utilize small groupings and rotations. Students can be engaged in tasks that are already designed for their levels by using resources such as Khan Academy or watching videos in their native languages, while I am able to support other students or work with them on more hands-on tasks. Secondly, I have been supporting a group of 11th and 12th students from the Newcomer cohort in learning the foundations of software engineering. Laptops are not easy to obtain, so we meet only once a month. During lunchtimes and after school, 2-3 times a week, students will be utilizing these laptops in my classroom as they work through Code Academy tasks and projects. Unless they pass an English proficiency test, my newcomer students are not accepted into the regular, mainstream "pathways" (engineering, health, art, social justice...) that all other students are able to join in 10th grade. My students deserve to have exposure to the careers they are interested in, especially those in STEM, where they are highly underrepresented.
