Basic Materials

My students need books to help guide them through the process of creating programs in "Scratch" as well as headphones so they can hear the sounds in the program.

My Students

Every student needs to know how to read and write code. At my school, we are trying to make this a reality through teaching them how to program using Scratch. A typical day in my classroom involves students learning by doing, spending as much time as possible working on programming projects.

My students are from Bedford Stuyvesant, a low-income neighborhood in Brooklyn.

My school is a new middle school in its second year specializing in STEM education. We are eager to bring as many interesting things as we can to the classroom, and will work 12 hours a day so that we can do so. Our students love hands-on learning and love the arts. They have strong personalities and are loving children who are eager to learn. They love working together to create things and crave the extraordinary.

My Project

These materials will help my students to produce excellent work. The books will allow them to work at their own pace and truly learn through doing. Those that have a hard time understanding my examples or explanations can get a second resource to help them learn the material. In addition, my students will be able to use the headphones to focus during class and listen to the sounds they can add to their programs.

Currently, my students do not have readily available resources and my classes are full of random programming sounds that can be very distracting to students that already have a hard time focusing.

The books as well as the headphones will help them to focus and become more independent learners.
