Ms. Wagner from York PA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Blueprinting Your School

My students need rulers and graph paper to be able to create their figures by hand. They also need charged tablets to be able to digitize their graphed figures.

My Students

Imagine moving to a new country. You walk into a classroom and you may not have ever had any formal education before. You have never read or written and you have this smiling teacher talking to you in a language you don't understand. These are the students I teach every day.

I teach at a Title I school in Pennsylvania where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students have very limited schooling in their own language and are now thrust into a formal school setting. Even thought Mathematics is its own universal language, the language barrier between teachers and students makes things very difficult. The majority of my students have come from Central American countries, and from many different and often difficult situations. They hold the American Dream, but need the tools to make them successful.

My Project

My students will be working with creating a scale blueprint of the different floors of our building. To do this the students will need to be able to accurately draw the lines and figures on graph paper to make sure everything stays organized. After they have measured, and drawn all the necessary information on their picture they will be using fully charged kindles to scan in their blueprints to then create digital versions that will end up in a presentation to the class. These presentations may also help our student council be better informed when making new suggestions to the school administration for changes.

My project will make a difference because these students are digital natives, and learn better when in their comfort zone.

Our classrooms are not yet at the level technologically to meet their needs as learners. This grant will help to close that gap just a little bit more.
