My Students

My students range from Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors, all with Learning Disabilities/Dyslexia. My students require multi-modes of input to learn. They receive their English and Reading classes in an instructional, self-contained setting to provide intensive supports in Reading in a small group setting. They are part of a Multi-Sensory Reading Program, which is a highly structured program using many styles of learning to help students who are either non-readers or far below their grade level.

My students are highly motivated by technology, but due to the lack of technology in the school, the students do not have the ability to have this available to them at all times.

Our school is located in a high poverty area, so there are limited resources in the community as well as in the school. My students need hands-on opportunities to learn new skills.

They struggle with learning new concepts or understanding concepts without the use of visuals and/or manipulatives to be able to see and do. When they are able to use a variety of learning styles, they are more engaged and learn best.

My Project

The HP Spectre 360 Touch-screen laptop will support the software necessary to use the Dremel 3D printer requested in Part I of this project. The first step prior to printing is drafting and creating. Using Novel Engineering, students will identify problems within a novel being read in the classroom and come up with a design or invention which will provide a solution to the problem.

Students are going to be really engaged and motivated to come up with solutions to problems and then actually create the solutions to see it come to life.

This is going to bring a new level of excitement to Reading. Students can use the HP Specre 360 Laptop to easily draft their invention as it is touch-screen and the screen flips all the way around like a tablet.
