Ms. Danley from Chandler AZ is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

All Right, Mr. DeMille, I'm Ready For My Close-Up.

My students need a camcorder and tripod to record themselves for various classroom assignments. They will use this technology in combination with other pieces of technology to enhance technology skills.

My Students

"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."-William Yates My students are ignited by engaging, hands-on, real-life problem solving learning activities. A variety of classroom technology will provide them with many opportunities for application.

My students live in a suburb of Phoenix.

They come from diverse backgrounds. Many of our hard-working families have been adversely affected by the declining economy, but still remain dedicated to our school programs and actively participate in their child's education. My students enjoy school, are a cohesive group, and desire challenges.

My Project

Instead of assigning the typical paper and pencil book report, I allow students the option of "reporting live from the scene" of an event in a book (complete with student-created backdrop), or producing, directing, and acting in a scene (for which they must write a script) from a book. The requested camcorder and tripod will allow my students to do this. Of course, I do also require the traditional paper and pencil method throughout the year; however, these types of alternative methods which integrate technology are so meaningful to the students.

Introducing students to alternative methods of completing assignments is so very important to reaching ALL learners and learning styles.

Students appreciate being exposed to many forms of technology, and learning how to use and take care of them. Your generous gift will allow my students the opportunity of doing just that--an opportunity that most won't otherwise have.
