My Students

My 8th grade English classroom is dynamic in terms of activities, participation, and curriculum. We focus on the theme "Upstander versus Bystander" through all of the literature that we read. We learn to "do the right thing" in the face of danger and risk through the characters we read about.

My students are diverse in culture and ability.

I teach in an inclusion classroom with a special educator and resource room professional aids. my school is a growing suburban middle school that is suffering from overcrowding and large class sizes. Our school is a welcoming environment with beautiful artwork in the hallways and a school motto that students model on a daily basis.

My Project

I am looking for more technology resources in my classroom as we have 2 exclusive computer labs in a school of 1300 students. I am looking for this Chromebook to be used in our upcoming mock trial related to our reading of Steinbeck's novella Of Mice and Men. We are building a media team who will create a website, news stories, and they'll even produce a press conference. This Chromebook will be used by the webmasters and media editors for this project. Beyond the mock trial, it will also be used by students who are working on their writing after school or during study halls. We are moving toward using Google Drive and I have some students who lack computer and Internet access at home. A Chromebook in my classroom will be one step in the direction of allowing students equal access to resources. I would also like the resource room teacher to be able to use it in her classroom during resource room times.

I am hopeful that I can connect the classic literature that i am teaching my English class to 21st century resources available by having a Chromebook in my classroom!

I'm very excited for our upcoming mock trial and the possibility of being able to use a Chromebook in this capacity and then for students on a daily basis afterwards. Thank you for reading through my project and for your consideration to making a donation.
