Can We See Ourselves?

The cost of a TV and DVD/VCR from Best Buy, a TV cart from the Quill COporation, and a safety belt from Nasco is $885, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a 7th and 8th grade Science teacher at a Title I school where 62% of my children come from low income families. 96% students qualify for reduced lunch. Most of my students here at La Tijera School are second language learners. Teaching from text material is not at all conducive to the learning environment. I would love to add high quality video and pictures to the science lessons. Today's students have far less attention spans than we had in school. Incorporating this type of technology would bring loads of excitement to the classroom. We have no televisions and VCR's on campus for rentals. They belong to the teachers who have acquired them for their classrooms. I have purchased videos and DVD's to supplement the material we are learning. Our students do not have access to hands-on learning for science. We have no science lab and there are no funds to purchase materials. My classroom is a traditional bungalow so there are no science lab tables. Our district has a policy where no animals for dissections can be brought into the class so there are really no hands-on learning. The DVD's and videos would substitute tremendously in this area. It would be incredible to be able to use this simple form of technology in my classroom. I can't express how important it is to get these kids interested in school and keep them interested. These kids are the future.
