Hooray! This project is fully funded

In my class of 10-15 learning disabled high school students, everyone is working very hard to learn and grow. Many of the students struggle with reading and most find spelling extremely difficult. The students' primary goal is to take general education classes. I want to help them reach this goal and complete the assignments they are given in general education. Many of my students do not have access to a computer at home and are just beginning to learn how to work on a computer. At this early stage, they need more adult support than our school's computer lab has available. Having access to a decent computer to complete assignments in the classroom, with adult help and guidance, would make a huge difference in their ability to successfully participate in general education classes. Unfortunately, the computer in my classroom is an Apple IIe. I did not know they still existed! My students would benefit greatly from a new classroom computer that we can use to access the Internet to do research (our school is Internet ready), and to write papers using the spelling and grammar check features of Microsoft Word. This computer would also allow us to install a typing program that I already have, which would help students develop keyboarding skills. Students will take turns using the computer throughout the day. Once they have developed a reasonable amount of self- sufficiency on the computer, they will also be able to use the school computer lab to continue to strive towards their goals!
