A Story of My Own Part 2

My students need a Canon EOS Rebel T7i DSLR camera w/18-55mm lens and 32GB Accessory Bundle to record and document their experiences as immigrants in a new country and their continuous journey acquiring a new language.

My Students

I work with students who come from various backgrounds. Many of whom are English Language Learners from low income families who have a drive to learn. These students are friendly and love to be engaged and immersed in the English language and our school culture.

Many of my students have limited access to opportunities due to family structure and responsibilities.

Many of them are beginning a new life in this country and deal with isolation, transition and adjustment to the expectations of a new culture and school system.

My Project

My students need a backdrop, camera case and and extra batteries that they can use to record their experiences and feeling transitioning into a new place in the form of short movies. They will also use pop sockets as they record their personal narratives in a "selfie" format. My English language learner students will also utilize these devices to interview each other and native speakers to practice their English skills.

Having access to these materials will allow my students to integrate technology into their language learning experience, allowing them to apply 21st century skills while recording, editing and writing within their newly acquired language.

This kinesthetic learning project will make it easier for students to feel comfortable while retaining skills that are necessary in learning a new language.
