Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a 7th and 8th grade mathematics teacher in the South Bronx, NYC. My school lacks sufficient means for its teachers to photocopy or duplicate educational material of any kind. (The photocopy machine provided by the union is in permanent disrepair and teachers have highly restricted access to Department of Education copiers.) This means that I cannot supply my students with such basic classroom materials as: worksheets, study guides, letters to their parents, graphic organizers, rubrics, or anything that would require photocopying. I focus my teaching around a constructivist, student-centered approach. I have found that one of the best ways to implement this is through supplying students with graphic organizers to guide them in discovering math. Each day I work with 90 students whose math test scores range from a 1 (the lowest possible score) to a 4 (the highest possible score). The vast majority of my students have scored either a 1 or 2 in previous years. With such a wide range of abilities in a classroom, text books simply don't engage every student. For the students who are significantly ahead or behind the curve, a photocopy machine would allow me give them individualized worksheets to target their specific needs. Moreover, a photocopy machine would allow me to improve the depth and breadth of my instruction by increasing classroom efficiency. Currently, my students waste a lot of time copying notes, problems, and everything imaginable from the board. Spending more time working on math and less time being human copying machines would mean big academic gains for my students. The copy machine I have chosen is reliable, but not extravagant. This school year, I have been blessed with students who have the attitude and ambition to succeed inside the classroom. Please help me provide the best education possible for my students.
