I teach United States and World History at Havenscourt Middle School. The school has been identified as a Title I school. Many of my students are working to acquire English and hesitate to speak in class. This hesitation is a challenge because I want all of my students to participate to their fullest potential. I am hoping to increase student participation in class by giving them the opportunity to give a PowerPoint presentation detailing what they have learned as a unit assessment. Our school is lucky enough to have an LCD projector. Unfortunately, our school does not have a computer available to create presentations. Few of my students have access to computers at home. As a result of their lack of exposure, they are eager to use computers. The excitement generated from integrating computers into the classroom is a sure way to not only grab their attention, but to keep it as they prepare their presentation. Use of the computer will improve their technology skills and better prepare them for higher education. The opportunity to use a computer will heighten their learning by giving them confidence in regard to public speaking and computer skills, making them better equipped for the success they are working so hard to achieve.
