I am a Special Education Teacher at PS 197 which is located in Harlem, New York. The majority of children in my class are from low income families. A computer therefore is not a priority. I would like to give my students the exposure they need to become computer literate in this computer generated country. We use some of the educational websites to reinforce concepts taught in the classroom. A computer in my classroom would be greatly appreciated by both teacher and students. The Renaissance reading program was introduced at our school last year in order to help struggling readers with fluency and comprehension skills. The children are required to read at least one book per day and take a quiz at the Renaissance website. We also use the website Starfalls.com to help the students with their phonemic skills. A computer would be of great benefit to my struggling learning disabled students.
