Hurricane Katrina blew the roof off our school. Our library computer, with the school's CD burner, was damaged by water. Our school administration, with the help of the National Guard and a temporary roof, was able to get the school reopened in October, but because spending has been restricted, we have not been able to replace the CD burner. My request is for a new library computer with a CD burner. Our state provides access to United Streaming, which is a great Internet resource for standards based videos, teacher's guides, and images for downloading. We are entitled to download to CD's and use them as long as the state maintains the service. All of our students, kindergarten through fifth grade, benefit from viewing curriculum related films to enhance their understanding. I am the school librarian, serving students in kindergarten through fifth grade. I propose to download and maintain in the library a collection of CD's indexed to the Louisiana Curriculum Standards. Teachers would check out recommended videos for use in classrooms whenever visual presentations would enrich student learning. Older students would be able to use stills and video clips in their research reports and Powerpoint presentations. I believe that students learn from properly presented videos almost as much as teachers enjoy using them. I can facilitate that learning if this proposal is funded.
